Nothing will work if her body isn't ready. Tell her to go for a long walk and have sex. The prostaglandins in semen may help to soften her cervix. Oh, and tell her to avoid Castor Oil unless she discusses it with her doctor first.

If I knew my cousin wouldn't still be pg. She was due the 11th with her 3rd but no baby yet. All 3 she has gone overdue with. Hopefully she has the baby soon.

saying shes overdue means she doesnt hsve much time left anyway Most docs wont let people go past 42 weeks.

Scrubbing a kitchen floor has worked for a few women I know.

Yea she's been walking like crazy and she said sex isn't helping lol I told her don't do the caster oil cuz I've heard nothing but bad things so she is staying clear of that... Her daughter was a week early and she was hoping her son would be too but he is saying no lol I've read about foods she could do but idk if she has made them yet. She even ate a whole pineapple and nothing.

Her body isn't ready yet.

Nothing but patience will help.
Everything else is coincidental.
And Military doesn't care enough about family life to not send him away before the baby is born. DH was deployed last year and missed, our 5 year anniversary, Heathen's birthday, my second miscarriage, and had I not lost the first, he would have missed the birth.

Tell her to get a pedicure.

Does the pedicure actually work? I told her to ask the doctor what she can do.. I'm gonna let mine induce me if he feels I need it I'm wanting her to wait till our fam comes to visit but she's miserable and has gestational diabetes and is ready lol... She's more scared the meds won't work or the epidural won't work... I've heard of the pedicure thing like a pressure point in ur foot but I've never tried it and we talk every day bout what she's tried and they give her timeable contractions but they send her home and she hasn't progressed past a 3 I think...
