i started getting pains 2 weeks before my second daughter was born!!! i had the sweep thinggy done which didn't seem to help. they told me that it usually takes 2 of them to make a difference. by the time i got my second one i was already in the early stages of labour so i'm not sure if it made a difference or not. Good luck with it all and make sure you let us know when you have your little one :-D

paybacks are a bitch when you have a screaming baby at 12 in the morning for them! thats when you take the baby downstairs crying in the middle of the night and ask them to turn it down. good luck. (or you could give them a reason to have the music up that loud) lol

i saw my midwife 2day and she has told me that his head is still 2/5ths in my pelvis same as a fortnight ago!!! the castor oil didnt work it was absolutley disgusting. I am having a membrane sweep on monday if that does not help i am being induced the following monday, hoping wont have to have either but me hoping doesnt seem to be making a difference AND  to top it all off we have just had some new people move into the flat below us and they are playing there music VERY loud @ 12am!!!!!! everything seems to be goin wrong at the minute :( thank u all for your comments xxx

Talk to your OB about what will happen if you go past your due date. When I talked to my OB about that we scheduled a medical induction for 41 weeks and having a date really helped me to wait it out. I am spending my time making things for the baby and cleaning house. While a medical induction is not as ideal as going into labor naturally they recommend it as opposed to self induction methods like herbs like black cososh or castor oil which may stress the baby and not be monitored by a doctor. The red raspberry leaf tea is yummy but is only a uterine toner and won't actually make you have contractions. It does not hurt to stay active. It will make labor easier on you when it does happen but believe me it does not make the baby come any faster at least not for me :) I only have 2 more days to wait. Yeah!!!

I wouldn't suggest the castor oil thing. That was the one thing my midwife said, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't but its not worth trying and I agree. I would say sex it up and do some walking but from what it sounds like you will get to meet him soon! Unfortunately he will only come when he is good and ready. :) good luck!

Well everyone always says go for long walks, have lots of sex...I've heard of the castor oil thing too...don't know if I could stomach that though... Sounds like he's on his way anyway...hopefully he'll come soon!! Good luck!

It sounds to me like the first stages of labor...I'm not a doctor, I'm just going off my expierence... With my first (now 3), I had the same feelings all day the day before my due date, and at 11:58 that night my water broke and she was born on her due date...hopefully that will happen to you!!! My son was a pain in the butt though!  He was a little bit bigger though, and the last month was horrible!  I tried everything to help him along, from walking to castor oil and nothing helped.  Everyone is different though, it didn't work for me, but it might for you.  He was born a day before his due date...I wish you the best of luck, hopefully you'll have that bundle of joy soon!
