im 40 weeks been drinking raspberry leaf tea for about 3 weeks now 4 cups a day, and been bouncing on my birthing ball everyday! cant have sex as hubby doesnt want to . the other night i thought my little madam was on her way had 3 contractions at 15 mins apart but then nothing!! was gutted
i had to be induced with my first cos my waters broke and i didnt go into labour so with my second i tried everything, pineapple, sex, raspberry leaf tea, curry, walking everywhere and the result? i had to be induced at 14 days over and ended up losing a lot of blood! Baby will come when baby is ready and should just accept it make the most of the extra pre baby time and pamper yourself
Hey everyone I am 40 weeks and 1 day. On Monday (Nov 5, 2012) I had my 40-week appointment and was told that my cervix is soft and that I was still 1 cm dilated (for 2 weeks now) and I have lost my mucus plug already (at 36 weeks). I asked to get induced but I was told by my OB that they usually wait for that when you're 9-10 days overdue. I have not been feeling anything different since 36 weeks except for some shooting pains "down there", some upper inner thigh pain which makes it really hard to get in and out of bed and to walk, headaches, nausea, really bad heartburn, lower back pain and shooting pains up and down my legs. My blood pressure is fine (120/80), no bleeding, baby is active and no contractions. I have tried eating pineapple, walking, going up and downstairs, bouncing around, incorporating some sort of spicy food during every meal and so far...unsuccessful I really want my baby out. I am scared of labour but right now all I want is for her to be healthy and in my arms. I have relatives who are overseas constantly calling me to see how I am doing and if I am in labour yet. I always give them the same reply I know she isn't going to stay in there forever but it feels like I will never be able to say "She's here!". Does anyone know ANYTHING (besides sex...really not up for it lol) that can make me go into labour soon??
