Just for fun! What are you doing to evict your baby!!


I am so done with pregnancy now. I know baby will come when it's ready but am interested to see what things other ladies are doing to nudge them in the right direction!! 😁 more to pass the time really!!
I do lots of walking everyday anyway. Today has consisted of bouncing on my ball for ages, star jumps and sideways walking up the stairs!! 😂 I hope the neighbours can't see in!!!!! Off to go and buy some pineapple on the school run.
I have very frequent braxton hicks and awful pressure down there. I hope it's not too far away!

I know it's bad but I did caster oil with my ds. But I had literally one teaspoon of it mixed in orange juice because I was so afraid of causing damage, so I'll never know if that's what brought labour on (you're meant to have like 2 tablespoons) but I did go into labour that night...! (39+3) and he DID pass meconium in his waters, so I don't think I'd do that again!

I tried so much with my DS. He was just stubborn and I ended up being induced.

This time I plan to do red raspberry leaf and try to walk more. But I am due to be induced 10 days early so I don't think there is much I can try before that.

Sex sex and more sex! Evening primrose oil, raspberry leaf tea, ball bouncing, acupuncture/pressure and breast pumping! Pineapple won't do much as you have to a) eat the core b) eat tons! You can buy bromelain extract which might work..

Talia what is castor oil supposed to do? I thought it just gave you diahorrea?

It is a laxative but it's meant to be properly effective at bringing on labour, the danger is that it might also make the baby pass meconium. That's why I tried literally one teaspoon. Will never know if it was a coincidence that my waters broke that night, I'd had no signs of labour up to that point.

I tried everything except for sex (did diy it though) and castor oil. I hate pineapple but ate loads (who knew it could make your tongue feel like it's on fire!!) I expressed colostrum from 34 weeks, I bounced and walked. I knew they were all old wives tales but I had to feel like i was doing something to make him come out!!
In the end I had my induction date booked and had a sweep and he came the next evening.

Do you think just eating the whole core of the pineapple might work? I'm going to start drinking red raspberry leaf tea this week and once I get to 39 weeks I'll try pineapple, bouncing on ball and increase the raspberry tea!

I definitely won't be trying castor oil!

You might as well give it a go! (Pineapple thing that is!) can't hurt.

I also diy'ed tons for the last couple of weeks, haha. I figured that while semen can help ripen the cervix, orgasms can tone the uterus and potentially start things off when it's pretty much time anyway. I remember it being a massive chore haha, while DH was at work I'd just get down to business as many times in a row as I could

Ate a whole pineapple last night!! Including the core!! Dtd and diy'd lol!! Still no baby. Sigh. Try again today I guess!!
I've been using evening primrose oil for a couple of weeks but decided against raspberry leaf tea thus tine as it make me feel really nauseous last time, the tea and capsules.

Oh be warned though I now have quite a sore throat after eating so much pineapple!! 😂
