wow, thats sounds great if it works, how much is that costing if you dont mind me asking. i really dont want to go over due as this babys measuring 2 weeks bigger than it should be - ouch!
with my last babyies i did all the usual bits = hot currys, long walk, pinaples, sex.
2 were lait, 1 on time and 1 a week early.
let me know what they do, it'll be interesting to see if it works, iv never heard of that before, think i might have to look in to it, good luck X

Hi, theres a change to when im having it done, i'm now having 3 sessions at 39 weeks, that way theres a better chance of it working.. its not costing anything free on nhs,  its part of the midwifery service.. they normaly only do it after your due date, but as im due 17th december and already have children( 1 thats birthday is xmas eve) there going to do it early, as with my other pregnancys i'v gone a week past my due date..
