Have you spoken to your midwife? If she thinks your in enough pain that the pros outweigh cons she may agree to induce in a couple of weeks time?

I donít think anything natural works unless baby is ready xx

I felt the same, although it was my first, baby still measured 2 weeks ahead. I was massive. My midwives thought I would go early, but instead my lo was born the day after my due date. Unfortunately, there isnít much you can do or that anyone would recommend since youíre only 35 weeks. I would talk to your doctor or midwife about your concerns and go with their guidance. Youíre almost to the finish line, but the wait is torturous especially when youíre in pain. Wishing you the best.

I feel your pain! I have a torn ligament in my hip that will require surgery after baby is born. I'm 34+6 today and I have to live on Tramadol and tylenol just to function. I'm miserable most days from the pressure, extra weight, baby movements and just all over pain Speak with your doctor or midwife, they may induce early . My OB is possibly going to do my C-section at 38 instead of 39 weeks because I have been in so much pain and she thinks it would be better to get baby out a bit earlier to save my hip and my sanity.

But as PP mentioned, it's still to early to try anything to "naturally" induce at home. If baby isn't ready, nothing will work anyways. I hope you feel better soon, GL!

If I can give you any advice it would be to not try and start labour early - mostly because you will drive yourself absolutely nuts every day you’re still pregnant. I started obsessing about it around the same time and it made the last month of pregnancy last FOREVER. Also absolutely nothing worked (and I tried a ton of stuff). I just ended up exhausting and frustrating myself. But I learned it’s true that the baby only comes when it’s ready unfortunately.
Hope you get some relief soon!
