Due in 6 days, any advice


Hi guys.

Son was born at 40 + 5
Daughter was born at 39 +2

This soon to be Daughter is due on Sunday and I am currently 39 + 1

Sex brought on labour both times but obviously, it's not working this time she isn't ready to come. I think I may go over, if I do have any of you tried any other safe methods of inducing labours that you found to actually work? I know there is no scientific backing on any of them but I know sex worked last time so I can only assume other people had things work for them in the past, any ideas?

I don't have any advice from personal experience as i was induced all 3 times between 10-12 days overdue!! But alot of my friends had sweeps then went for really really long walks which seemed to do the trick for them! One kf5 my friends had her sweep then went for a walk down the beach and her waters went down there lol. I'm planning on doing NOTHING this time round as i tried everything each time and it still didnt happen for me so i dont expect this time to be any different lol x

I've heard nipple stimulation can help? I bounced on my bouncy ball and still went over due! Going to do a lot more walking with this second one as I reckon that'll help!

Like you said no guarantees but here’s a list of possibilities:
1. Lots of sex with lots of semen lol (that’s what may ripen cervix)
2. Lots of walking
3. Castor oil (comes with a lot of bowel upset)
4. Acupuncture or do your own acupressure
5. Red Raspberry Leaf
6. Evening Primrose Oil
7. Safe exercising
All should be ok’d by your practitioner but this seems to be the common list of things to try. Good luck!

Sex worked with my first, literally had sex propped a pillow underneath my bottom and minutes late I started contracting, most likely a coincidence and I was ready to go anyway. With our second nothing worked, I went ten days over and just woke up with mild contractions x

I had a sweep with both my girls and they both worked.

First sweep I had at 10am and lost my plug at 7pm, I had her 4am the next morning.

Second sweep midwife said it wouldn't work, but 24 hours later I started contracting and had her within 6 hours.

This time they think I need a section (partial placenta previa), but I will find out at my last scan tomorrow. I really don't want a section, but I don't want to go over due neither. Im massive and really struggling x

Hi Mummy of Ange when are you due this baby? Hope your scan went well, my placenta was like this with my Daughter but fortunately it moved.

I was told at my Kaiser labor class that walking lunges can help. Just be careful and have someone with you. Rolling hip circles on an exercise ball.
