Drinking rasp leaf tea, have had a few curries, been bouncing on my ball, had sex... really would like baby to come before induction.. What else can I do sad ?

None of it works. Anything that does will be coincidence. I feel your pain: I'm heading for section on Tuesday (40+9) with no sign of anything happening beforehand sad

Really sorry...but to echo what Trina says none of the suggestions I had thrust upon me worked. I've been very overdue 3 times and frantically tried just about everything! All I can suggest is a relaxing evening..a bath, little glass of whatever you fancy and thoughts of meeting your precious newborn within the next few hours or so (I have at least 9 weeks left to wait!). I wish you, and you too Trina, all the best smile xx

Reflexology seemed to work for me with DD1 who was term+ 12

Could have been coincidence, but I appreciated you will be willing to try anything as I was! Good luck
