  • i was 5 days overdue and the dr was going to schedule an induction the following week so I thought I'd try and induce myself and it worked. I did reflexology on my ankles and SO and I had sex that night. my son was born the next day. what sucked though is I was only dilated 2 cm and i was given pitocin which didnt work. I got an epidural and my sons heart rate dropped after every contraction so I had to get an emergency c section

  • Castor Oil. You need to be 39 weeks at least to try this I think. It worked for me but watch out it can make your labor happen really fast. Which isn't a bad thing but...just make sure you brace yourself and have everything ready and doc isn't too far away.
