  • The walking will work... keep walking. Have you talked to your doctor? My doctor induced when I was only one week late..

  • Mint leaves works!!!! We were at a wedding rehearsal and there were mint leaves in the salad. My hubby told me not to eat it because it induces labor and our son was the ringbearer!! Our food was served very late and I WAS STARVING!!!! I ate every bite of the salad and sure enough I went into labor within 5 hours!!!! I missed my baby in the wedding but it sure was cute having him visit his new sister in the hospital in his little tux!!! Hope this helps!! Good Luck :)

  • Take a drive down a bumpy road- have sex if ur doctor says its ok, as long as ur not dialated Im pretty sure the sex will do it- my hubby is a nurse and it worked for us.

  • I tried it all as well, walking, sex, the teas and even eating pineapple. I didn't really progress until I relaxed! Go figure! I would say go to the spa and get a pedicure, there are certain acupucture points they hit when they message your feet that can help with labor. If nothing else you'll have pretty feet!

  • it will happen when your baby is ready...your body will do the work when it's time...hopefully, right? that's what i hear too.

    i'm right there with you though, i'm 39 weeks and 4 days pregnant, today and have so much pain and discomfort everywhere...it's awful...but, i'm going to be patient and pray that my baby boy comes soon. i need to go into labor on my own because i'm trying a VBAC. i'm not dialated as well yet, 40% effaced, cervix is high and soft, not thick or thin........but, my midwife says that doesn't mean a thing... i'm hoping i will go into labor a day after my due date, june 1st, the day my daughter turns 18 months old. i've been taking evening primrose oil 1,000mg a night and bouncing on my birthing ball, walking a little, sex... we'll see?! good luck to you!
