  • DO NOT do castor oil. It's Toxic to your body if you take more than a teaspoon. It DOES NOT start labor like so many mexicans think it does. Try sex, washing the floors on your hands and knees and walk walk walk walk and oh yea, walk some more.

  • There is not enough prostiglandens in human semen to put you into labor.

    Pregnancy is 40 weeks unless baby decides to come sooner. There is a reason for that.

    Nothing will work unless your body was going to do it really soon anyway.

  • I tried everything at 39-40 weeks and she ended up coming 40 weeks and 4 days by c-section. I dont beliebe there is a way to do it, the baby will come when it is ready.

  • Walk like crazy!! Some women say orange juice, but who knows it is probably just a myth. I really like organic raspberry tea. It helps thin your cervix, but it does not put you into labor. The best solution is just be patient, and your little miracle will come when he or she is ready.
