  • I tried everything. Walking, sex, jumping jacks, spicy food..... with all of my kids. Only 1 wasn't late only because I was induced on my due date. Although walking probably does help (I may have been way later had I not walked), your baby will come when he/she is ready!

  • WALK!!!!!!!!!! They always tell you to walk to speed things up. or they put you on bed rest to keep you from starting it. but walk if you want to try to get it started. I walked up and down the hallway while washing clothes since i didn't want to go to far.

  • I wasn't trying to go into labor but twelve days before I was due, my DH and I had sex. 24 hours later I went into labor. A girlfriend of mine wanted to go into labor (she was realllly uncomfortable!) and sex worked for her as well.

  • Honestly - in less than 2 hours after having doggie style sex I went into labor. By the time I got to the hospital I was dilated to a 4.

  • The only answer I have for you is why the hurry? You will go into labor when you are (the baby) is ready. I just dont get why so many moms rush the process.
