I am now, 3 days past my due date and I've only just got a charge of energy finally today to stand all day and clean - hoping that helps baby to get down. My poor friend is a week over due and they are talking to her about inducing her on thursday. I don't want this to happen to me. I have a midwife appointment tomorrow and she had said that if I didn't have the baby by then, she could do a membrane sweep.
What do you all think of that - 4 days past due date getting a membrane sweep?
Thank you for the EPO suggestion. What is the dose like?
I'm taking all suggestions - the RRL tea, spicy curry, sex - and i hear arm wrestling helps too!
The pressure the hospitals put on us to deliver on or near our due dates is enough to stop the relaxing flow. I wonder how accurate these dating scans are.
I live in Wales and am having my baby here in the UK - going for a water birth in the hospital - at this particular hospital they allow you 14 days over due date before they schedule induction,
and it is always the woman's choice. They scare you saying it can be dangerous for baby if you go over the 14 days. I think in France they give you another week.
I just want to avoid induction as it is a fast rode to all other types of medical intervention.
Poor babies - they just want to come when they come.
More suggestions for preparing for labor is certainly welcome - and sorry if this thread also includes the "induction" word....it's all part of the experience I suppose - getting ready, and for some of us who passed the due date, how to still prepare and get things flowing in a gentle non-intrusive way.
