  • My due date was 9/22. I wanted the 9/9 baby so I tried everything to make little Tristan come out. He came out on 9/14. Here's my list of advice that I gathered from lots of people:

    Pineapple juice, pineapple popsicle, pineapple anything
    walking (althought I walked 2 miles per day up until the day I gave birth- so if you are a walker this wont work)
    driving down a bumpy road (my husband's grandma said to drive over rail road tracks- she had 11 kids!)
    washing the floors on your hands and knees
    pulling weeds- this is what worked for me I was pulling the weeds and my water broke less than 12 hours later.

    Good Luck... Hope this helps! I did all of the above.

  • mommykkay that was not very nice...i am sure she is done for, she is most likely tired of being pregnant and just wants to hold her baby already. heck i am 36 weeks and i feel like i have been pregnant forever and every week i see my doc i beg her to take my little girl out. so i feel your anziety(sp?). GL find anything that works for ya let me know.

  • nothings ever worked for me and i even had my membranes stripped cause my baby was so large and had extra fluid. she held on til the day before her due date. i was almost worried she may not come on due date and all over when she got so close to it. i feel like i'm ready to go but to early for me to try any of the above. gl
