    Hello, hope everyone is well.

    Is there anyone else who has had so much bother with there due dates???

    I have now been given 4 different dates each one getting later and later. Going by my cycle I am due on the 14th of December - hooray not long.

    After having a small malteser bump as my chum Karrina likes to call it I have been given two growth scans both giving different due dates.

    At the last scan my baby weighs 6lbs and perfect size wise for them.

    Any advice??

    I have to have a growth scan at 36 weeks, to check the growth too, although my dates have remained the same, I know they do change the dates if the scan is 1 week out from the last scan etc...

    YUK!!!! :lol: I have heard it, but I wouldn't try it! BUT........

    I have heard that raspberry leaf tea is ace for bringing on labour, (you can get capsues too) it helps the uterus contract and tone up and also helps with milk supply :wink:

    i tried castor oil a week ago :oops: DIDN'T work lol tasted gross and i wouldn't recommend the *ahem* "after-effects" LOL main thing, it didn't work, it gave me contractions 2 mins apart, lasting close to a minute each for 40 minutes (was waiting a full hour befoe going to the hospital) and after 40 minutes they just stopped. that was it, nothing else. so i wouldn't try it :D

    Kx I do believe you - your in the wrong profession I tell you.

    My partner tried to get me the castor oil from our pharmacy but seemingly they do not do it any more.
