    I'm gong to see a show on Saturday so in an ideal world I would like to have Flump on Sunday or Monday, so I can be back home in time for Christmas. Now I know my chances are slim, but we thought that we would give getting him out a go on Sunday.

    My plans are as follows...

    A nice long romantic walk, if nothing else we will get to spend some time together, a madras and copious abouts of :sex: poss not in that order.

    I've been taking 6 raspberry leaf capsules for about 3 weeks and I'm going to get some evening primrose oil capsules to stick up there tomorrow and I've been on my birthing ball loads to try and get him to engage.

    Any ideas what else I can do?

    My friend went with a vindaloo and some pineapple and within the night she was well on her way. Can't say it'll work for everyone but you never know. Could be worth a shot! Best of luck for the next couple of days, if not, crossing my fingers he stays put for a while!! Take care. :hugs: xx

    I've trying the walking, spicy food, RLT tablets, ball, clary sage oil and pineapple for a couple of weeks now, none of it seems to have helped.

    Maybe I need to try :sex: but I feel huge so not exactly sure how it would work or how I'd feel about it, we'll see..

    I do agree though, we all need some labour dust to get these babies moving sooner rather than later!

    I'm with you - I either want something to happen by Wednesday (at the very very latest) or from Boxing Day (EDD) onwards. Really don't want anything to happen this weekend as we've got DH's youngest to stay. Sod's law it'll all kick off!

    Personally I would wait... no point trying to "get things started" for a narrow window of two days...

    Relax, enjoy Christmas, if anything happens then deal with it, but hopefully no sign until afterwards... BUT this is a baby and probably has his/her very own ideas about scheduling... :winkwink:

    Good luck, but try not to stress it if your plans go to pot: afterall, Christmas happens every year, but Flump will only be born once :cloud9:
