  • i have heard that castor oil works, but Dont use it unless you have talked to your doctor, and you are willing to have diarea. there are also a few other home type things that you can use, but all of them you should talk to your doctor. if you want to know more ways just google and type in how to induce labor natrually. thats what i did. they have lots of sights that can tell you differant things and how effective they are.

  • i am in the same boat. i am due tomorrow. i have had a few nights of contractions after sex like 2 and 3 minutes apart, but they always go away. i have been walking, walking on the beach and eating pineapple and nothing. its a pain i know. i am worried he is going to take forever to get here, but i am hoping that my previous contractions have at least softened things up so my labor will be easier.

  • This was on one of my babyfit emails
    "Papaya also serves as a natural way to soothe the heartburn experienced during pregnancy. The papaya enzyme that helps soothe indigestion is called papain, or vegetable pepsin. Papain is found in the fruit's latex and leaves. A fully ripe papaya is not considered dangerous, however a papaya that is the least bit unripe contains a latex substance that is believed to trigger uterine contractions and may lead to early labor or miscarriage. Researchers have noted that unripe papaya latex acts like prostaglandin and oxytocin, which the body makes to start labor. Synthetic prostaglandin and oxytocin are commonly used to start or strengthen labor contractions. "

  • Continued--
    "It is best to avoid fresh papaya early in pregnancy unless you are 100% certain of complete ripeness. Later in pregnancy a ripe papaya can assist with heartburn control. If your Dr. has recommended natural methods for induction after 38 weeks of pregnancy, eating a slightly unripened papaya may be just the ticket." Tanya Jolliffe, Babyfit Nutritionist

    - this is the quote from babyfit I am not personally saying try it but it is up to you

  • I read that article, too. Give it a shot! The big things are walking and sex. Try to do what's comfortable, and keep away from the cohosh and castor oil! =) Spreading some labor dust your way!
