  • have someone scare the crap out of you when you aren't expecting it...it does work. also sex, long walks, herbal tea, heavy lifting (not too heavy), and spicy foods

  • Walking and sex are the safest. Even at 41 weeks unless your body is ready nothing will work. Good Luck I hope your little one comes soon

  • A couple studies have shown that taking prostaglandins orally (in other words, performing oral sex and swallowing semen) is more effective than intercourse at ripening the cervix. Interesting, and worth a try :)

    Walking and any physical activity is beneficial, squatting, and RELAXING :)

    Good luck, mamma!

  • You could try Evening Primrose Oil instead of the oral sex....

    At 41 weeks you are literally days away from having your baby. Just try to relax! 95% of women deliver by 42 weeks, and the average is 41 weeks 1 day. You'll get there!

  • I delivered at 41 wks and 1 day. I know exactly how you are feeling but no matter what I did, baby wasn't coming out unless it was on her terms. Sex & walking is what I will say too but there is no garuantee unless your LO is ready to come out. Good luck & congrats! You are within days of having this baby!!
