Kristy is getting fed up now and has tx me asking me to ask you girls for tips to start labour. Obviously she is in hospital so is limited on what she can do. She says no sex, and limited on what she can eat.
So far i have suggested raspberry leaf tea, birthing ball, and walking. She says she can try walking and is also going to try the birthing ball now, but doesnt have any raspberry leaf tea to drink.
So any other ideas would be great!!!

The poor thing, she must be so frustrated!!
Someone suggested Pineapple to me when i was having Cameron, not the kind of thing you'd have lying around next to your bed though !!
I'll keep thinking

How could you possibly eat 7 whole pineapple's in 1 day??
Sending her a huge hug, it must be so hard going through it alone

Drinking oil isn't a good idea, all it will do is give her the runs which is the last thing she needs!!!
I think she just has to play the waiting game!!!

It does sound like shes very limited on being able to do much to bring on labour, is she able to get out of bed for a walk that can help. Also i think the nipple tweaking thing helped bring mine on slightly i think it stimulates a hormone that helps with labour.
Feel free to give her my number karen so she has someone else to text and pass the time!!!
Please send her my love xx

I will send her all your love.
She has tx me this morning to say she is very fed up, she had contractions last night again. The midwife agrees she was in labour but they stopped when the doctor examined her. She wanted to go home but the doctor has advised her to stay in. They dont want to risk giving her a section unless she is in true labour so they are going to keep a close eye on her this weekend.
The doctor who saw her thinks it will happen this weekend and is hoping it will as he wants to do the section. Ray and the kids are going in to see her at 12 today, she is really missing the kids but Ray is whining about going in to see her.
Tasha i will text her your number, and the other labour staring tips that everyone has given. xx
