  • Try nipple stimulation...it seems to be the only thing you haven't tried. :)

    Sorry honey, but sometimes the baby wants to take its sweet time....It sucks, I know...

    And if you do castor oil, be very careful with that. It can cause problems (but I did it with the supervision of a midwife...she gave me a great recipe to put it in...).

    Good luck!

  • Oh, I thought of another old wives tale: spicy foods. I ate mexican damn near every meal hoping it would help. I did have a huge spicy lunch the day I went into labor.

    You could try that.

  • jumping jacks, and like another answer said, pushing heavy stuff. do something that takes your stress away, maybe a book, or hot bath, or cooking, or something you enjoy. the day before i went into labor, i moved my baby's room around, and my own room, and then i did crafts and made food for my baby shower the next day, and in the middle of my shower i fell asleep and four hours later i was in the hospital. four hours after that i had a baby!!! =] =] good luck
