I do believe i am going to be famous for being pregnant FOREVER< why wont she just come out. Everyday i have hours upon hours of good contractions but then they die down and nothing happens, i've had lots of sex, walked, had my membranes stripped 3 times and still nothing, i am 3cm but can stretch to 4-5 she is head down and ready to go, why wont she just come out.
I have the flu also which is making everything so much worse, my 15 month old don't give a shit if i feel like crap, the house work wont do itself (wish it would) and im just so exhausted. Someone come and pull her out. I'm soooooooooo done.

They probably wont let you go 10 days over by their dates. Have you spoken about induction yet?

Since you're over due, have you asked about an induction date?
Youu can try:]
Nipple stimulation, bouncing on a birthing ball, Acupressure, and squats

They will break my waters 10 days after the 25th if i dont have her by then, i dont see why they cant do it now but what ever. i dont have a ball, i wish i did and i have squatted so much my hips feel as though they are breaking.

So they won't break your water until August 4? If you're due July 20, that puts you 15 days over due! I wouldn't stand for that if it were me, I'd be demanding an induction date. but that's just me. I loathed late pregnancy.
Try sleeping with a heating pad on your breasts on the middle or highest setting. If that does not work, you can try these pressure points:

You can also pick up some Clairy Sage oil from your local health foods store or on Amazon for only $3 or so. Smelling or burning that stuff can sometimes help regular contractions get stronger.
All of the above options are safe and won't force your body if it's not ready.
I feel your pain momma, I'm 12 weeks PP and my pregnancy was awful.

Thank you for those tips, they changed my due date to the 25th so to them i will only be 10 days over, i will try anything at this point except castor oil, can't do that shit yuk.

I would have been like, don't you people dare change my due date! LMP is fine with me lol.
I know people personally that the heating pad on the breasts has worked for. and I've heard of the acupressure points getting things going in as little as a few hours. Your SO can help you reach a few of them, but the one between your thumb and index finger you can do youurself.
Since you're over due (by either due date), it's very possible something will naturally.
Let me know how things go.
