1 Day Overdue with DC2, How Can I Get Things Going?! (VBAC)

Turned 40 weeks yesterday with DC2. Trying for a VBAC this time after I had CS first time due to breech baby. They won't induce due to risk of scar rupture so the plan is to wait for me to go into labour spontaneously, with a CS booked as a last resort at Term + 12 days. My DD was 10 days overdue but maybe that's because she was breech anyway...

Midwife coming tomorrow, should I try a sweep? What else can I try? I really really want to avoid that CS booked for 11th December, eek! :-)

I'd just relax & make sure you do stuff, don't sit on the sofa all day. I walked miles last time, which in hindsight, was too much! Do stuff that makes you feel comfy & happy & get that oxytocin flowing!

Good luck x x

Long walks, ball bouncing, sex, sweep, clary sage baths.

Good luck!
