  • Sex, Sex, Sex, sex...did I mention sex? If it doesn't work what have you lost? Besides it is fun, and it likely will be a while before you can do it after the baby is born.

  • Sex
    Some herbal teas help like Rasbery leaf tea or black cohosh
    Nipple stimulation
    Castor oil....I dont reccomend this one at all....But it can help or just give you the shits....

  • ITA with carliemarie1015. You can try anything you want but if your body and baby aren't ready, nothing is going to work.

  • Nothing is going to work unless your baby is truly ready to be born...I went into labor after taking a VIGOROUS walk in the canyon. It's a total of 3 miles, up the canyon wall and back down. Hahah, I'd been walking it since before I was pregnant, and continued to through out my pregnancy, and then at 37 1/2 weeks, it was really hard that day, and by the time I made it back up the canyon, I was having contractions, the next afternoon my son was born.

    Oh, sex too if you feel like it. I didn't feel like it most the time, but I would try occasionally.

  • Nothing will work if your body and baby are not ready and that includes medical induction.

  • i say sex, chamodelion tea, castor oil, and alot of walking, also try getting in the shower and let hot water hit your lower back. a shower not a bath.
