  • She won't come until she is ready, but do a lot of walking (helps you dilate). Supposedly eating spicy food helps. Pineapple helps ripen the cervix. I did a lot of dancing and bouncing around when I get to that stage that I couldn't take it anymore. Walking up and down the stairs helps.

  • I love to read answers for this! I have 4 kids, with my first I ate spicy food and went into labor 2 weeks before my due date. With the second I walked on the treadmil and it was doing nothing so I started running on the treadmill, nothing happened. With the 3rd and forth I probably tried everything you have ever heard plus jummping on my trampoline. Nothing worked, the baby will just come when he or she is ready. Good Luck!!

  • Well when i was 36 weeks I ate at a place called Rosas, mexican food, and it jump started contractions 24 hours after i ate and i wasnt even tryn to go into try spicy foods. Im currently 38 weeks and have tried fresh pineapple and kiwis and nothing so i suggest spicy foods, walking, sex....if you have sex i heard try being on top then right after get in a hot shower and let the water run over your abdomen in a circular motion with the shower head. It put me in labor with my 2nd child. Good luck hun.

  • There are many options.
    Depends on how hard you want to try & amount of unnecessary risk you are will to add to you-baby.
    Since it might be a month before baby & body are Ready, it could require hefty force.
    How far do you want to take this? Do you want to make sure it will work, absolutely ?
