I have tried EVERYTHING, this is not my first overdue baby so i know that nothing really works. Midwife did try a sweep but couldn't because im so clamped shut. Apparently thats unusual for a 4th child, let alone a 4th child when im overdue. ahhhh there is no hope. I'll still be preggers by christmas

Sorry to hear that you are fedup. I know you have tried everything, but just checking that you have tried EPO? (orally and internally hmm)

I hope this baby arrives soon for you.
