  • One friend I had ate Mexican food and that did the trick for her, and a couple others. For me it ws getting hubby home and (ahem) getting reaquainted. Worked like a charm. But for the most part, good old fashioned patience works best. It sucks waiting out the last little bit, but your baby knows when its time. Good luck hon.

  • i got tons of advice and nothing worked for me. they told me to eat spicy food, eat a lot of food, walk, sex, nipple stimulation, castor & mineral oil (they both made me sick). good luck trying to make baby come if he/she isn't ready.

  • Just wait. If you want to walk, then walk. It will give you some exercise. If you want to, um...CUDDLE! The cuddle with your DH. It will give you both some much needed time together as THAT isn't going to be happening for a while! Usually, if you start cleaning the house for absolutely NO reason and it HAS to be done NOW, yeah, your nesting and will be going into labor soon.
