a curry and a shag

Nature takes care of it, I'm afraid!

Sex is supposed to help, as is fresh pineapple, long walks and curry. Though none of these made the slightest difference with DS who was still born nearly 3 weeks late.

For the record, I also tried reflexology, hot baths, travelling on a bumpy bus ride, giving DS a BJ(sorry TMI) and having a cervical sweep. Still nothing.

Curry and a long walk.

I saw a fab reflexologist who specialises in a technique to start you off. I went into labour the next day - yippeeee!

I think osteopaths may have a few tricks as well, but I very much doubt you'll find one who is willing to start you off.

Oh, and clary sage oil. Put it in an oil burner, and rub some on your tummy.

Good luck!!

Missyhols - sex worked for me on DD2 she was two weeks late and I would have tried anything it worked within hours and the DS was coaxed out the same way!

missyhols Mon 03-Sep-07 13:00:28

PregnantGrrrl Mon 03-Sep-07 13:05:18

missyhols Mon 03-Sep-07 13:11:23

make sure you buy some mints before you see DH as your breath will stink from licquorice and curry.!!!!!!!


Poor DH!!

Went to a loud outdoor rock gig - I was 4 days overdue. DS jiggled around like mad to the music and decided to come out the next day to get with the scene.

(He still loves to dance...)
