  • I hate to say it, but no matter what you try it won't work unless your body is ready to go into labor. Unfortunately... :( Trust me, I'm due on Monday and I've tried EVERYTHING twice (at least) for the past 3 weeks... ever since they gave me the "go ahead". My dr. says he's a BIG baby, so it would have been safe to go at 36 weeks... I held out til almost 37 weeks before I tried the: Castor Oil, Citromax (both are laxatives), EPO (contains the same hormone as semen so it is *supposed* to help you dilate), Red Raspberry Leaf tea, pelvic rocking/tilts, accupressure, LOTS AND LOTS of walking and sex... and yet, here I am, 39 weeks and 5 days... and dilated to 1cm. Whoopee. (note the sarcasm?)
