40 weeks and 3 days preggers
« on: November 14, 2011, 03:38:32 am »
I'm going crazy. She was due on the 11 th. I've tried castor oil I've tried sex I've tried walking I've tried stairs! This little girl is relentless! Any suggestions I'd rather not be induced ...

I feel for you! It would drive me nuts too if my daughter was born late.  I love my daughter but I have fibromyalgia and lupus and I will have been pregnant 11 months out of 12 by the time I have her and I can hardly stand the pain I am in because I haven't been able to take my medicine.

Poor thing!! I got on here bc i'll be 40 wks tmorrow and feel  like I'm about to come undone already. I dont want to be induced either. Although the rest of the world does - and they all get their babies a week or two early. Doesn't seem fair. But a friend who insisted she couldn't take it any longer got induced at 38.5 weeks. Her baby has acid reflux, and is "lactose intolerant" already. She didnt even try breastfeeding either. baby is fussy and has to have expensive formula. I think we are doing something right by staying away from induction.

I agree usually babies that their mother was induced have health problems just like any baby born before 40 weeks can have.  I feel bad for you moms that go over 40 weeks its hard.  Sadly I don't really know any self induction tips other than my friends Dr told her a good way to self induce is milk of magnisia.  She learned that yes it will induce but it is also very messy once your in labor. She used it to induce herself early with all 3 of her babies because she couldn't stand to be pregnant anymore (she is one of those moms that most people know who shouldn't have kids she's had her first 2 taken off of her three times) so its easy to see why she would induce herself at 32 weeks after she self induced at 35 with her first baby.

Ive been there...my first went 7 days over.  I literally walked hills and then after nothing that night decided i was going to dye my hair and my contractions started with dye in my hair...my mother though i was crazy for waiting out the hour, showering and blow drying my hair (all while contracting every 3 minutes lol)  With my 2nd i tried pumping around 38 wks bc i heard it could help your cervix..and he was born the next day!

I am getting close to your situation, I am 40 weeks today and do not feel like he is going to show up anytime soon. I also do not want to be induced, but at the same time I want nim to be here before Thanksgiving.  I have also tried sex and nipple stimulation with no success.

With my son I went to 41week and 4 days I tried every thing under the sun. And no luck even had my membrans stripped 3 times and I still had to be induced.  I hope you have better luck. Hear is some ideas

Spicy food,pineapple, eggplant, walking,bumpy roads,sitting/bouncing on an birthing ball,sex, nipple stimulation, castor oil,stripping membrans,try looking up labor inducing food recipes.  Good luck

Try pumping your breasts... I saw it on a baby story for a women who didn't want to be induced but had low fluid and it worked. Good luck!

My husband and I learned recently sex will only work if the woman orgasms.... So maybe keep trying that because it brings contractions

Sex works in 2 ways actually, orgasm for the woman causes contractions but sperm is a cervix softener so it can help if the woman doesn't orgasm but it works better if you do

I asked my doctor to strip my membran and I swear that as soon as he took his fingers out of my vagina I started to feel my contractions. Not even six hours later, with a lot of walking, and seafood. I had a healthy and beautiful baby boy.... good luck hun!!!!
