  • You don't have to be induced. If you really want to avoid it then have them do an u/s so that everything is still ok and the baby is getting what it needs. If there is enough fluid and everything else looks good then its your choice. If it turns out that you need it then its best for the baby. If they get too big they dont have enough fluid etc. to keep them safe and healthy.

  • Walking and sex are the two big ones! I also tried raspberry leaf tea and spicy food. Ultimately, it'll happen when your body is ready, which is no consolation, I know!

  • I was induced because my son just didn't want to come! Sometimes you just make such a good home inside of you for your baby that they don't want to leave! Inducing may be your only option, but there are many ways that are said to induce labor, like having sex, going for long walks, eating spicy food, taking castor oil. I'm not sure what actually wil work for you, since nothing worked for me, lol. Good luck, and wishing you all the best!

  • My cousin's wife always went into labor after eating lots of Mexican food. I tried it about two days before my son was born. I'm not sure if it had anything to do with it or not, but it's worth a shot! I actually was induced too though. My water broke, but I wasn't going into labor, so they went ahead and induced me. I was scared because I had always heard bad things about it, but I didn't think it was bad. Good luck.
