Just some sympathy for you here - my third baby was 12 days over her due date, I couldn't believe it!! I had a sweep at 41 wks and went into labour about 20 hours later.

You already know there's nothing you can do to hurry things up there are a hundred old wives tales, maybe some work maybe they don't, baby will come when it's ready but it will definitely arrive, you won't be pregnant forever - even though it feels like it at the moment!!!
