  • Sex and walking are the best ways to get things going. Your not over due until after 42 weeks, so don't stress about it :) there are tinctures that can help, herbally, if you look on some websites. Blue/black cohosh are suppose to help with jump starting labor.

    I wouldn't get a hospital induction though because it's really risky and if their isn't a need it could do more harm then good.

  • pressure pionts the easiest place is to rub the webbing between your thumb and your pointer finger and you want it to be painfull and keep in mind that it doesnt work for everyone.

  • Keep in mind that the average pregnancy lasts 41 weeks, 1 day for first time moms.    When you appreciate that it's not likely time yet then maybe you can let go and relax. :-)
