HELP! I was due today and baby didn't come...

Anyone try any natural inducing methods that actually worked? I have two herniated disks in my back and have been in so much pain throughout my pregnancy I need her out soon!!

  • Some would say intercourse will bring on a hormone that will induce. I don't know if you can stand that much activity, but it's worth a try.

    As much as it hurts, you need to walk. Exercise will bring on labor also. I KNOW! (three week early son!)

  • I just walked the mall and went into labor. That might cause you alot of pain though. Baby will come soon!

  • oh please. i walked my butt off ALL THREE TIMES and so did my sister-in-laws. all babies were delivered late except ONE. you'll have her when your body is ready to have her. i'm sorry to hear you're in pain, but that's the truth.

  • i know everyone says sex, walking and stuff - try that....
    also, the space between your thumb & index finger is a pressure point - press that and if it hurts you found the right spot - hold onto it with pressure until you reach a contraction - also if your SO kneeds his knuckles on the arch of your foot thats a pressure point - also someone said jumping jacks can break your water - i never tried though - im 38 weeks - 2cm & 60% effaced. - im trying to get things going lol.

  • do not take anything like caster/glycerine/rose oils all that does is cause bad diarehha...semen has something in it that mixes with a RIPE cervix and causes it to dialate and soften, but other than that and walking...just hang in there any day now mom.
