  • Sex, no. Sperm, Yes. There is a chemical in sperm that can cause contractions to start.. it's how my first son was born... lol

  • There is nothing you can do to go into labor, I even got my membranes stripped and I was still preggo for a week, the baby will come when ever he/she is ready to come unless they induce you and even then you can be in labor for a while. I was induced with both of my kids with one I was 18 hours in labor and other 9. Good luck God bless and Congrats !

  • no one knows what helps. how can anyone say it was sex, or castor oil, or some kinda tea. If that baby was ready tricks or no tricks it was going to come that day. We had tons of sex and tried walking, bouncing on balls, hot and spicey food. I was trying these things at almost 42 weeks nothing worked. Just be patient.
