Sweep + sex
just got to the end of the gestation period and they came out. Isn't that normal?
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.
bouncing my bum on an exercise ball whilst sipping on red wine.
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.
wow! tried nips with dd that didnt work but hurt! lol
sweep i'd love- sex i wouldnt im huge lol
curry sounds good to me LOVE it
long walks help but this time i have spd
getting hair done today so may try hot curry and then GULP sex
oh i forgot about clary sage i'll dig that back out. had lots of baths with it in nd had dd days later
Nineunlikelytales - 'giving DS a BJ(sorry TMI)'????
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!
lol. when things get desperate
membrane sweep. it was horrible, but my waters broke that night.
yeah not pleasant but it also worked for me with dd1. just wish they were not so stingy with them! i only managed to get one with dd as i was under consultant care at the time.
being the obvious
Oh dear God I've just realised what I wrote
Kathy I promise I am not a pervert...DS wasn't born then, hence the ahem. It was DH.
Liquorice Allsorts. Ate a packet and labour started hours later....same idea as a curry I think.
ok so im getting my hair coloured going to eat a spicy sub way eat lots of liquorice and perhaps a curry and then shag dh when he gets home. fingers crossed! lol
make sure you buy some mints before you see DH as your breath will stink from licquorice and curry.!!!!!!!
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...)
