Almost due date, bored with waiting. Anyone got any tips that actually worked to evict babies?

Due on Monday and was assured it would be early due to being engaged at 34 wks and DD only being 1 day late and my first etc etc.

Anyway, I am now officially UP FOR labour and BORED WITH waiting...

Anyone done anything that worked to bring it on?

I watched a video of a birth (said to be a trigger) and my waters broke 2 hours later!

Don't know if it was coincidence or not!

<Belgrano hurries off to youtube to find a video to watch>

I went on a see-saw with a friend's toddler two days before my baby was due. I went into labour 6 hours later. Again - conincidence? We'll never know!

LOL at see-saw! grin too bad you can't get into parks these days unless you're accompanied by a child! wink

Just wanted to say Hi to Belgrano! Best of luck! I'm due a week from today and will be in your shoes shortly! {{{{{{{{labour vibes}}}}}}}}} smile

I tried to watch some birth videos, but I think they may have put me off even more.

I went to the races at 40+1 and sat on the round stools by the paddock. I had a very strange sensation up there when I stood up. If you are anywhere near it's Stratford tomorrow smile

Hi Belgrano and LBOT! I fel your pain! I am 39+1 today and seriously FED UP. Every night I think I am having cramps etc and that tonight will be the night but then wake up in the morning with nada symptoms.

I have tried walking, hot food, nipple tweaking, pleading to baby to come out and meet us, we haven't done the deed yet but DH always looks scared when I try to jump on him!

Hurry up bambinos!!!
