Not really. I am 41 1/2 weeks and am currently trying it all. So far nothing.
I've been on the treadmill, been taking EPO, drinking raspberry leaf tea, eating pineapple, papaya. Taking Castor oil is out of the questions, I don't even want to risk my baby passing a bowel movement.
I had a sweep not sleep haha oops.
I'm due today, but they want to induce me possibly tomorrow because of something about a 10th percentile, and him being only 6 pounds due to a malfunction with my placenta. I don't want anything to do with induction because of complications risks adding onto the problems already there.
I think I will ask for a second sweep. My midwife said a series of them can help induce laboratory.
I am so far over I am going to do castor oil soon. I have been doing everything and I am nursing a toddler so even Brest stimulation. My midwife said that I should do castor oil last since I am gbs positive. This is number six and I will go pretty fast then castor oil also increases the speed of labor and I will need antibiotics. Baby is getting to large I really should have already taken the castor oil the only thing stopping me is the gbs. I will give it till my appointment I will be 42 weeks.
Since I am so far over my baby is at risk for passing a bowel movement now. Mature bowels is what causes the baby to pass stool and I will soon be 42 weeks so I am pretty sure his bowels are mature already.
