Hi all! Slightly disapointed that i am now officially passed my due date(40+3) and hoping little one makes an apearance sooner rather than later! Anybody else out there said bye bye to there date? Have started the endless walking up and down the stairs to try and help things along but nothing so far! Some eviction tips would be greatly appreciated
Well I hate to break it to you but nothing (and I mean nothing! I tried them all!!) will work. Baby will come when he/she is induced ready I can only offer you sympathy as someone who was induced at 42weeks. My theory is the people who tried things that worked only succeeded in advancing their labour by 24hrs or so (but hey by that stage you take what you can get) I had two membrane sweeps, tried walking (until I was too big to move), curry, raspberry leaf tea, yoga, sex, pineapples, jumping up and down.... nada. My best advice is to avoid facebook - I couldnt even play the games on there without someone asking if I was in labour - why yes, thats why Im playing Mahjong!!!
Don't be disappointed, it will come and when it does it's like a baby train hitting you at full speed. I know it's a bit of a cliche but enjoy your last days of freedom. Go out for dinner tonight, go have tea and cake in a little cafe that doesn't have room for pushchairs and otherwise put your feet up and save your energy. Good luck.
