What do you think did the trick?

I was eager to go into labor last weekend so I tried many natural things to make it happen. Something worked because I did go into labor. Below is the list of what I did. Which 1 of these things do you think actually did the trick?

--Ate a whole pineapple
--Boiled parsley and drank the water I boiled it in
--Inserted fresh parsley close to my cervix
--Sex twice a day, ejaculation once
--Had DH fish around w/a glove on to pull parsley out
--Scalini's eggplant parm (actually went to the restaurant)
--3 doses of 1tps castor oil, 4 hours apart
--Prayed that it would happen
--Took daily 30minutes walks
--Worked a 5 hour shift as a waitress

DH says it must have been me working. I went on maternity leave about 3 weeks before so it had been a while since I worked.

  • really put parsley up there? Never heard of that one before.
    I would say it was a combination of all the things you tried and that the baby was ready to come anyway.
    Congradulations on baby! :)

  • None! Your body was ready for labor. Nothing actually puts you into labor.. All it does it aggravate your body causing stress to be honest.
