  • LOL..if you've tried all that and it still hasnt worked..I would say try to relax and just wait for baby to come...and he/she will..when they are ready. Some babies just love thier mommies so much they want to stay inside as close to our heart as possible for as long as possible :)

  • Wait for labor to start by itself because you don'twant your baby to be born before he or she is ready . And your uterus has to be ready all by itself. WHY do you want to do that? There is only so much control you can have over your body,you know. You are not supposed to decide these things.

  • Sweetie, that baby will come when it's good and ready. I wouldn't want mine to come a single day before it's ready. And, I had 4, full-term, no inducing.

  • Black and Blue cohosh are dangerous. And if your body and baby are not ready then it will not work. Just stay pregnant until your baby releases the hormone that signals it is done and you will go into labor.

    Just because you are ready to eat baking brownies doesn't mean they are done baking and ready to come out.

  • If your body isnt ready nothing will work. You can try evening primrose oil if you would like. Google evening primrose oil labor induction and it should give you the proper dosages but i believe its 3 to 4 pills at once. I have never taken it but have heard a doc recommend it and seen it work twice.
