  • I've found sex to be the most effective.

  • Sex or oral sex that will make you ORGASM!!! An orgasm makes your uterin muscles contract which can trigger labor. GL Go have some fun with your man!

  • The best way, and take it from someone that was prego with twins till her ninth month, and two days over due. Yup..with twins and over due! Walk Walk Walk...walk up a hill, just keep walking. Make sure you have water on hand of course. But try to walk up a big hill a couple of times. It works. Also try sitting on the edge of your bed and bounce.

  • Best as in most effect or most safe?

    Sex and walking cover them both, after that not worth it.

    Why do you want to induce, though??

  • I was 9 over days over due. I could not walk because my sciatica nerves hurt so bad, but I had 3 other kids to deal with. If she is so miserable, tell her doctor to induce her. Some people may disagree with this, but I walked, had sex, had my membranes stripped, tried pressing certain nerves, but still nothing... The baby will come when it is ready. Good luck.
