    Just wondering what other ladies are currently trying to get their baby(ies) out! I accept that they might not work but if anything its keeping my mind busy! :haha:

    I am trying:

    RLT - since 31 weeks Currently on 4 cups a day
    RPO - since 34 weeks. Currently 1500mg orally and 1500mg vaginally
    Orgasms - often as possible! :haha:
    Nipple stimuation - tried for 1st time today
    Bouncing on birthing ball

    I am not pushing things much at the moment, but I am having four RLT drinks a day to help during labour, and I bounce on my ball for an hour a day to encourage a good position.

    When/if things get desperate I will be trying everything known to man to bring it on!

    Pretty much the same - RLT capsules, about 4 a day, bouncing on the ball. Burning clary sage oil pretty much as much as I can stand : /

    I have been drinking RLT since 32 weeks (now 39+5) plus bouncing on ball. Have run out of RLT now and can't be bothered to go and get any more! Nothing else really, I've given up all hope of this baby coming out and its not even my due date yet lol!x

    Nipple stimulation worked for me last time,but i only did it night before due date so there probably is an element of your body has to be pretty much ready and its just that little extra push that does it but i will keep trying anyway! :haha:
    Keep forgetting about clary sage, could try that too and maybe I should go for a long walk, its just so nice and cosy inside...!

    How long did you do nipple stim? And did you go into labor the next day?

    Nipple stim worked with DS1 but I've tried it this time and my nipples are way more sensitive than last time :-/ I want to breast feed but even touching my nipples hurts and makes me rather queasy.....weird I know :-/ but with DS1 I did it while on the computer or watching TV and with my hand so I just kinda zoned out while doing it so I wasn't focused on the actual chore of it and I went into labor that night but I was 3.5cm dilated
