I am 38+2, and currently in the middle of nesting!
I've been in my house for 3 months, and have cleaned it like no tomorrow and still not happy! I've bleached the porch and cleaned the windows!
Baby is engaged, but no obvious signs (not lost plug or waters yet! Tried raspberry leaf tea, and I've heard emptying bowels is good too... Any other remedies to try?! Constantly walking, done stairs, always on my birthing ball... Refusing castor oil, but other recommendations would be lovely!
I've suffered with severe backache and had a few minor tightenings, slightly stronger than braxtons over the past few days!
Anyone else like me, or have been and could give me advice on how to help get her moving! X

She'll come when she's good and ready! None of the home remedies worked for me, I was taught a very valuable lesson in patience (dd was born at 40+5).

Do things you won't be able to do when she gets her, have breakfast out, have a lie in, go to the cinema, the time will pass and when she's ready, she'll let you know smile Good luck!
