  • the only safe and natural one that has worked for anyone I know is sex and walking alot. But the baby is only going to come when ready, you just might get to help feel like your helpping it along.

  • Just let things happen. I know it gets hard the last few days, but why put yourself at risk. Walking, sex, stair climbing are ok. DO NOT use castor oil. You run the risk of dehydration because it causes diarrhea which irritates the uterus causing it to contract. So in some cases it works, but it's not reccommended. I would just leave things alone since your body seems to be doing what it is supposed to be doing.
