  • Overdue baby

    Strange question.

    Any hints to get an overdue Baby out?!

    Baby due Saturday. I had my other child naturally and early.

    I do not want to have to get induced as is protocol here in the uk.

    Any advice to start the labour ball rolling? !

    Orgasms.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

      A friend of mine said that nipple stimulation is what brought on her overdue labor.

        I have heard spicy foods are suppose help but don't know why.

        Just don't mix this suggestion with Joanie's or the results can be painful!

          Combine Joanie and Urban Forager's reply and you'll have yerself a little one in no time. Repeat as many times as it takes. Enjoying said activity while in the shower is known to bring even more luck.

          Good luck and congratulations!!

              Spicy food, orgasms, and nipple stimulation. I should be pregnant (impossible as it is).

              Anyway, no advice - but best wishes.

                Thank you. ... I have been trying all of these. ..... Would you believe I'm sick of having an orgasm?! No I really am. And my nipples hurt!

                I'm being brave and soldering on though lol. Thanks for your replies

                  Gentle bouncing on a fit ball and long walks are meant to help too. But don't take my word for it - I tried all those and was still 9 days over with each of mine. Induced for the first at +10, thankfully my second decided to come himself the night before I was booked to either be induced or have C-section.
                  Good luck!

                      Baby will come when it/you are ready. Personally I would (and did) avoid sweeps etc.

                      It's worth doing some reading around not having an induction despite the protocols. This isn't really the place to ask, look up Positive Birth Groups on Facebook and there may be one local to you. If not the Positive Birth Movement have a national page.

                            Long Walks and Orgasms - sounds like a country-western song.

                              In my day I took classes with the National Childbirth Trust, they advocated to not induce as it causes a much more difficult labour from trying to get things going when the body isn't ready. As long as the baby is doing ok. I did have to be induced with my first, he was in trouble. My two girls delivered naturally, just fine, but were two weeks late. Things may have changed there now I guess.

                              Yes I tried all of the things mentioned and then some. Even rode a power lawnmower. But they came when they were ready.
                              Started Primal June 2012 at 148.5lbs, and 5' 1", reached goal weight in 5 months.
                              Lowest weight 93lbs - too thin. Now stable at around 100lbs much better weight for me at my age.
                              Primal, minus eggs, dairy and a myriad of other allergens.
