  • Myth. I think you will start labor when your baby is ready.

  • I don't know, I guess its different for everyone, Nothing works for every single person, My cousin tried everything from castor oil to Gold Star to induce labor, and nothing worked. I however heard that having intercourse etc would induce so I cohersed my man into bed and at 6 am the next morning my water broke, I think alot of it has to do with how much stress it puts the baby under, IF the baby feels it can't handle it or its uncomfortable baby says screw it I am ready to go, But When baby wants to stay ...baby is gonna stay

  • It is true that it can give you indigestion, and it's also true that sometimes abdominal cramping (which are muscle contractions of your abdominal muscles) can stimulate labor contractions. But it's not going to work unless you are ready to go. My first labor did start after I downed a couple chili dogs at the fair.

    The sperm is the primary "motivator" in sex as a labor starter.
