  • WALK! I walked around the zoo for about three hours when I was pregnant with DS. My water broke about five hours after we got home!

  • wait for your baby to tell you it's ready to be born? Due dates aren't exact...you may believe your 40 wks & 2 days; but maybe you're only 38 wks? Who knows? You're in the home strech try to hang in there ;-) -- if your LO waits too long your Dr will discuss induction with you...

  • Walking helps ...If your back doesnt give out first,

    I hated walking,

    Bumpy roads i suppose thats what my mom always did with the SIL'S and Sister,

    Castor Oil i dont think so! didnt do nothing for me but make me sicker than a dog, and its a natural laxitive, so....it was coming out both ends ...sorry i know TMI,

    never did the nipple thing,

    sex i did know the sperm is what thins the cervix

  • Nipple stimulation -both breasts same time 15 mins on 10 mins off for 3 hours. It releases oxytocin and can cause VERY STRONG CONTRACTIONS!! Beware, very intense contractions!!! Then have sex w/ SO - no lube and make sure you do it doggy-style so that he can get very close to or in direct contact with your cervix. Then walk for a while - labor will soon be upon you and it will hurt like hell!! lol - good luck!
