  • No pooping! I vote for no poop as well. I took my SIL walking around the neighborhood for about 2 hours and I walk fast. She had my nephew the next day. She was cussing me out the whole time about "Slow the F**k down girl!" but she had that baby the next day. Have you googled how to start labor online? I think there are teas and such that you can drink. I have heard of castor oil (no thanks, I will pass) that you can take to help speed along the process. I also heard that having sex will jump start labor as well. I just don't know that I'd be willing to go through sex only to have my water break during.

  • I've heard pineapple and nipple stimulation...not together though (unless you just wanna). I'm almost 39 wks so I feel your pain!!!
