  • you can try acupuncture. there is a spot on the inside of your upper ankle. it works for some, not me though. but worth a try... and also they say having an orgasm can get things going. that is if it is safe for you to do...

  • I tried Castor Oil and sex with my first, it worked! My mom used nipple stimulation with all three of her kids and it worked every time.

  • Try going for a long walk. I ate pizza the night before I went into labor w/my first. They say spicy foods, sex, & going for a ride on bumpy roads help too. Good luck!
