Im 1 day overdue, me and my husband have tried endless methods to coax him in to the world but to no avail. I guess he will come when he wants to, he is obviously very warm and toasty.

Anyone else overdue?

I went over due and the worst bit was people who kept asking if I had had baby yet!!!!!!!! Confused

I was induced at 40+6 because of concerns but on the positive note for you, you know you will only have a max of 10-14 days left and baby will here.

Hey Alex, 14 days sounds like such a long time to wait though, considering the last 9 months (I am VERY impatient)
I have to go back for an antenatal Friday so think I may take up their offer of a sweep. It may bring things forward if I havnt had him by then

Take a sweep, it might just help start things off. I had 2 and although contractions didnt start it soften my cerfix and the gel hit quicker when I was induced.

Aww hun, i know what it's like to go overdue too and as Alex said it is sooo annoying everyone asking you if you've had the baby yet?. . . 'urrrr does it look like it'! I always wanted to say, haha. I went 5days over with both of mine, and couldn't wait either time. As Alex said accept the offer of a sweep, it may just help. I tried walking too, and the day before both mine were born i had walked miles! Think it may have just been coincedence though. Tbh i think he will come when he is ready, whatever you do? Good luck though hun, i hope you don't have too long to wait. Don't forget to post a piccy of him when he arrives Xx

sending labour vibes Thumbs Up

i sound like a bit of a pervert but you should try sex as sperm contains something that can get things going, have an orgasm as the contractions can get things going too and also play with your nipples as this also sets something off that can get things going

sorry theres not more info but you can look it all up if you want to find out more


early night tonight Naughty

I went over with both of mine. charlotte was 12 days over (I had to be induced with her) and George was 4 days over.

I ate lots of fresh pineapple and spicy curries, raspberry leaf tea, went for lots of walks with the dog and hot baths but I think they come when they are ready. I found I didn't feel as fustrated about going over with my 2nd because I was still very busy, so try to keep active and your mind occupied, hope he makes his entrance soon xxx
