  • Oh lawd!  Get ready crouse3.  Okay, so I've been told walking, sex, spicy foods, etc.  None of those worked for me but maybe they will for you!

  • Why do you want to?
    What makes you think you should, are you having complications or preferring convenience?

  • I tried everything in the book (sex, walking, caster oil, primerose, etc) and nothing worked for me. : ( Good luck though! If you find one that does work, let me know so I can try in a couple weeks. : )

  • I have tried everything as well and nothing worked for me I had to be induced with both my boys.. But good luck and I hope you find something that works for you bc I know that close to the end you just want it to be the end and have your beautiful baby in your arms

  • My friend was told by an elderly latino lady to boil hot water and one cup of cinnamon drink it! She had tried castor oil and walking and sex before but the one day she did the cinnamon trick, 6 hours later she was in LABOR! Amazing right?

    I don't see the harm in trying it at this point of your pregnancy because it's not like you're only 8 months. You're basically ready to have the baby so a little forceful action won't hurt?

    Goodluck! If you try it, let me know if it works! I'm 8 and a half months pregnant and I will attempt it if im 38 weeks.
