    Ha, I tried fresh pineapple (no point in tinned pineapple, or pineapple juice), walking, hot curry (which I do not recommend, as it was sore on my piles the next day) and finally a sweep. The sweep seemed to do the trick – but then, I was already having mini contractions, the sweep just seemed to make them suddenly kick into gear.

    I did not try:
    sex (not a hope, I was a whale)
    nipple stimulation (too sensitive)
    taking a car ride over a bumpy road (unless you count the journey to hospital)
    playing on a playground swing (I would NEVER have got off it!)
    Scalinis Eggplant Parmigina ( http://www.scalinis.com/Bambino.htm )

    I also did not try castor oil, as I have heard some painful stories – I do not recommend.

    The other ones are worth a try, lol… won’t be long now, I made it to term plus 4, I feel your frustration! good luck 🙂 xx

  • Both my boys were 2 weeks late!! I tried everything!! Born at home with midwife, and they don’t induce… Baby will come when its ready… Hope for u its soon 🙂
