  • sex, semen has something in it that softens the cervix, going for a long walk.

  • Sex is the best. But you may not feel like it. Put as much pressure on your cervix as possible. Be vertical more than horizontal. Sometime we can do everything possible but if the baby is not ready to come he will stay in there for as long as he can :). Good Luck!!!

  • you can try by having sex and walking a lot, but it might not do anything it all. My baby didn't come until she was ready, no matter how much I tried to get her out. I even had my membranes stripped twice and she still didn't come (she was 6 days late).

  • i had the EXACT same problem as Sandra! My second has been trying my patience ever since! Either way, walking won't hurt a thing, and this might be the last chance for some sex for a LONG time! =)

  • Passion Iced tea from starbucks. It really does work and it's not dangerous and caffeine free. It actualyl has hibbicus and lemongrass which contracts the placenta. I would get a couple just to drink for the day or night. No water, sweetend with light ice. It tastes really good too. Just drink that and you'll go into labor! abpfeffer2002 is right also. Sex because it might be a while before your able to do it again.! I wish you a great delivery.

  • SEX SEX SEX SEX ! I know you dont feel very sexy but just think of what could result in some long time need intersourse with the one you love. Also walking not fast but a nice pase. I know the walking worked for me since I was always going to the hospital with contractions. I was walking at work and that is what caused alot of my contractions. You can also try caster oil but the most that might do is give you the poops. Good luck and keep me posted.
