I'm so fed up! This is my 2nd baby, my son was born 40+5, never thought i'd be later this time.

DD just doesn't want to budge. Had a sweep yesterday and midwife said i was partially effaced, 2-3 cm dilated but cervix still quite far back and babies head not very low yet. Had some pink cm after the sweep but nothing since.

Have tried sex, walking, pineapple, spicy food and i occasionally have back ache and period type pains but nothing comes of it.

Am booked in for an induction next monday but really didn't want to go down that route, feel like crying i'm so done :(

Im sorry :( im sure its very frustrating. If you have to have the induction, they are not so bad. I have to usually be induced since i have bleeding issues and a history of fast labors. I will send you labor vibes! Fx she comes before monday!

Oh wow, I can't even imagine. I'm so sorry. Prayers that she decides to come on her own before Monday. :-)

Maybe some VDay candy and romance will encourage her to come into the world. I am preg with my first so I don't know too much about his stuff but I've heard preneal massage with coconut oil is supposed to help too.
Hugs and best wishes sweetie!

Oh you poor thing! This is my first so don't know first hand yet but I've heard nipple stimulation does wonders for getting labor going. Worth a shot right? Good luck to you and I hope that your baby girl comes soon!
