I can't believe how many of us are still here.. I thought at least some of us would have had our babies by now!?

I've been the same yesterday with cramps all day that fizzle out to nothing too. I have an appointment with the MW tomorrow morning so will see what happens there and then an appointment at the hospital on Monday.

Its like you said Sweetcheeks, my DD was 10 days early and no issues, yet here I am, a full week overdue!

Sending lots of labour dust to us all, I hope we can beat induction! Xx

After a rather emotional day yesterday I have pulled myself together. Attempt 2 at sweep tomorrow will just hope that can do something to get things going.

Hope all these cramps turn into something a tad more promising soon!

Is anyone trying anything alternative? I've booked to goto a reflexologist in the morning if there has been no change today.. Surely the sweep and reflexology have to help? I can only hope! Xx

I think I am having reflexology tomorrow at the hospital appointment. They have booked me in for something called 'post dates package' which apparently includes a sweep but also some other things including reflexology. My midwife didn't seem to sure what was involved but said they are doing a study to see whether reflexology can bring on labour.

Still here 40+4

Sweep booked for Tuesday which feels like a lifetime away.

Yeah lets hope, not really sure what to expect just hoping it gets things going. It's not actually the hospital I will be giving birth in, it's the birth centre which is much nearer to home than the hospital is. Think I am going to ask them to just book me in for an induction if they can't do a sweep today either.

Sorry so many of you have gone so far overdue. Both mine were born at 40+4 and that was enough. I hope you are holding your babies in the next couple of days.

Well yesterday didn't go as expected for me! Currently in hospital being induced as they are worried about the size and lack of waters around baby. They did try to break my waters but my cervix was so far back they couldn't do it, it really stressed me out and caused me so much pain I was screaming. Have been on constant monitoring so cannot get up and about, the water birth is out if the picture
So now have had a pessary put in for 24hrs to see if my cervix becomes more favourable.
Will update you as and when I can. Hope some of you other ladies have had some progress.

Oh Mrs SM.. I'm sorry you didn't get your water birth and all the pain you have gone through already. Can you not use the pool one labour is established for you? Did they say about baby's size after a scan or just after having a feel of your tummy? I hope things progress favourably for you from here on in.

I had my sweep yesterday and am 3-4cm dilated but not 100% effaced yet.. Still only 3/5ths engaged. MW said when LO moves down things should progress quickly. My problem is that she has shown no signs of full engagement yet and I'm wondering about the size of her head and whether she will actually fit?

I had reflexology too but that hasn't helped me to get her out either!

I have been booked into hospital at 4pm tomorrow for a 'review' but not sure what that entails?

Anyway, good luck for today Mrs SM, I will be sending positive vibes to you xx
