  • The only thing is basically just wait..I've tried everything...sex lay down flat on your back wait 30 minutes than have sex again...you'll have some contractions but they'll stop...DON"T TRY THE CASTROL OIL..it's dangerous on the baby...Walking doesn't work..I walk a block a day and still nothing..I'm just now 4 cm..I stayed at 3 cm for a month and i'm almost 39 weeks pregnant with my 3rd...Just let nature take it's course...baby comes when it wants to...unfort. i know it sucks!

  • I did do the Castro Oil. My baby was perfectly normal but I wouldn't recommend it. It gave me the worst cramping and I was on the toilet all day "relieving" myself. I won't ever do that again!

  • Lots of sex...and then eat a big plate of spicy, heavy lasagna. Lol okay I don't think that actually works, but that's when I went into labor! :-P

  • i didnt mean that it would do something bad to your baby but it does increase your chances of the baby haveing a BM and if they suck that in with their first breathe it could cause very bad breatheing problems

  • Walking did it for me, but baby will come when baby is ready, normally.
