So far I have tried spicy chinese (don't like Indian Food), sex, lots of walking (up and down hill), bouncing on my birthing ball, pineapple. Although he is very low, partially engaged, etc. and from the stretching seems to be running out of space, does not appear to want to come out yet.

Any suggestions please as I have really had enough now. My last 2 had been born by now!!!

jersey - me too!!! i'm 39+2 and want to meet my baby now.
My ds was 2 weeks late and the thought of another 3 weeks to wait is annoying the hell out of me!

I tried all those things when i was having ds1. how long do you have left? have you had a sweep? can be effective. Although nobody knows what starts them coming. you're doing all the right things. i think the most likely to make a difference is sex. because of the hormones the sperm carry, its the same as having the induction gels.

good luck
