    so what are you ladies trying to bring on labour.anything weird wonderful and down right crazy?

    or are there people like me not bothing with it all and letting baby come on its own accord.(mainly out of lazyness on my part) have a birth ball and RLT from time to time but thats about it.ive decided just to stay relaxed and chilled out and let baby and my body do what its designed to do :flower:

    Hey! Nothing works anyways! I tried stuff and nothing helped hahaha. I did drink raspberry leaf tea though and went from 2-8 cm's in half an hour, so I would drink that if I were you...

    I haven't really done anything to bring on labor.
    I have gone walking a few times, but not much. My lady bits hurt a bit so I haven't DTD in a week, as of Friday my doctor says my cervix isn't ready so I'm sure I'm going to go overdue and now I'm wishing I would have TRIED to do something ANYTHING to bring on labor.

    Ppl keep going on at me about the pineapple - from what I gather to get the right level of enzymes from it to be of any use you'd need to eat 10 a day! That would most likely make a person sick so I'm not doing anything to get things moving....LO will come when she's good and ready and if she's overdue then I'll let those qualified deal with it.

    Walking up hills?! Chance would be a fine thing - with SPD that would be plain silly. ;)

    I have exactly 1 week left till my due date and NO symptoms whatsoever.

    I am drinking 4 cups of raspberry leaf tea daily, bouncing on my exercise ball pretty often, I had sex every other day and planning to continue :blush: and tonight I am planning some nipple stimulation while :sex:.
    I am pretty active all day, I have been very active all my pregnancy, now I just want to have her in my arms...the sooner, the better.
    So far I don't really know if any of those will work.
    Keep you posted.:kiss:

    I started on the RLT today, just had one bag maybe I should do another now!
    Heard they only work if used for few weeks before- I am not necessarily drinking it to bring on the labour but have heard from so many people that have drank it that 2nd stage labour was so fast : )

    ok well i've been trying alsorts and nothing works!!! ive been drinking RLT but thats not supposed to induce labour, its supposed to make the 2nd stage quicker.

    i've been bouncing on my ball, i've been going on the wii fit (trying to keep active) tried a stupidly hot curry (well 2 actually), tired sex (but only once really coz hubbi is freaked out by it), tried nipple stimulation which brings on BH but nothing progresses. i've decided baby is staying put till she wants to come and thats that lol x

    hi ladies,

    today is my due date, but I don't feel anything that would suggest I might go into labour.
    I have tried everything : RLT, Pineapple, hot curries, lots and lots of chilly food, warm milk, sex, bouncing on ball, getting down on all fours as advised by my midwife....nothing has worked.

    Today I haven't managed to do anything, been on the phone all day because my family friends, work colleagues and neighbours have been calling and texting etc to see what stage I'm at.

    I'm so ready to meet my little girl but she just feels too comfortable in my tummy.
    The only difference I have noticed today is that my bowl movement is looser (sorry tmi) but not sure if that means anything.

    Can any of you ladies suggest anything ???

    thanks
    xx

    im coming to the conclusion all these things only work when your bodys ready to go into labour.just helps it along abit when the time does come.

    after 13 days of labor and being stuck at 3cm, I actually danced like a crazy person lol. It worked enough that they finally admitted me and helped me out! But I was 40+6 lol
