  • How about waiting until your baby is ready so you don't end up in the hospital attached to an IV full of antibiotics?

  • Don't. Bad idea, dangerous for you and the baby, just don't.

  • Just NO! If you want it to happen 'naturally', then you will have to wait for nature to decide when and if it happens.

  • There is no way. Allow nature to take its course for the sake of your baby.
    You have waited all this time. A little longer will not hurt you.

  • There are many stories of how you can induce labor: eat spicy food, drink mineral oil, have sex, go for long walks, take a bumpy car ride.... the only ones i was ever willing to try was sex or walks bc they dont have a downside. Doing anything invasive would be total stupidity. Be patient...sleepless nights with a fussy newborn will soon be yours! :)
