Hello All! I'm more of a lurker but I've posted here a handful of times or so.
Anyway, today is my due date! Yay!
I had my midwife appointment today (dilated to a 2 and 30% effaced) and she said it will be "a few more days, maybe a week." So my question is is there anything I can do naturally that will get me on the few more days end instead of the week end? I'm not terribly uncomfortable physically but the mental anticipation is definitely starting to get to me! I know pregnancy doesn't last forever but I'm ready for it to be over sooner rather than later!
Happy due date! I hope I look as good as you do when I'm 40 weeks. Have you tried sex? That is what sent me into labor with my son haha. I don't have any advice for anything else except maybe walking and such. Good luck and I hope your little one arrives soon and safely.
Castor oil ultimately worked for me with Amelia, at 11 days past my due date. Contractions started four hours after taking it. But, I tried it at four days past my due date with my older DD, and it did nothing.
Hope to 'meet' your little one very soon!
