Time.
You have a few days before your due date even, and many babies wait past that, because it's just an estimate, after all.



Maybe ask about having your membranes stripped?
and no more caster oil.

Walking and sex. But from someone that has been 3cm since xmas and 4 cm for at least a week with consistent contractions unless your body and baby are ready nothing will work. Just try to relax and enjoy the last few weeks. And unless you are taking the castor oil under a doctors recommendation I wouldnt do it again.

Primrose oil does not put you into labor, sorry. It just softens your cervix. And no your doctor strips your membranes. Just wait, you wont be pregnant forever. You still have 2 more weeks.

Your doctor can strip membranes at your next appointment if you ask them.

I understand that, but you can still go over due. Just ask your doctor if he/she can strip your membranes!
