I'm so ready to have my girl too !! I'm already 39 weeks and I'm due on Friday , I'm 3 cm  since last week , excited to see if I dilated more at my appt tmmrw. I've tried everything too , try pineapple , they say if yu eat fresh pineapple and yur already dilated it helps yu out even more becuase of something it contains, not sure if it will work but worth the shot . :) try also walking up and down the stairs:)

I'm due today!!!! Have tried the lot too, even pineapple and nothing!!

Hobojo - I wouldn't advise castor oil to start labour, there are a lot of negative side effects from it, including the baby becoming distressed and passing meconium in the womb which you don't want!

Fingers crossed we all go soooooon!!!

=) yeah. Thats why i said 'am not' trying castor oil. Im really not a fan of fruit but I might try some pineapple.. I went for another walk today so hopefully thats helping.

Sorry, my bad, I read it as you were going to try it....I despise pineapple to, but tried it yesterday and nothing. I'm 2 days overdue now 3 to 4 cm dilated, head is 4/5 engaged, losing my plug and still nothing!!

I give up, I didnt want to be induced, I wanted her to choose her on birthday, I dont feel right choosing it for her. but it looks like thats the only way this babys gonna come out! im so irritated an exhausted i dont care anymore, im just tired of being pregnant.

Are you being induced before your due date then? I am not due induction until I am term plus 10....and if the labour ward is busy then term plus 12. I am currently term plus 4 today. Can you request a membrane sweep to try and get things moving...I am hopefully due a 3rd sweep tomorrow and hope that it might finally start full blown labour. You never know n a day or two we may both have given birth!
