  • I tried everything! DS was two weeks late. For a month I walked two or three miles a day. We had sex all the time, and I did the evening primrose oil. Finally after two weeks I was induced with cervidyl and then later with pitocin. I finally ended up with a c-section after 72 hours!! DS just didn't want to move!

  • Walking, sex, bouncing on a yoga ball, spicy water broke early the next morning (well, technically it was still the evening before, I guess, since I had just laid down in bed). I don't know that I really believe any of that got it going, though.

  • Walking, sex, walking, sex....
    I also would sit on my exercise ball and bounce some and stretch out my pelvis. Tried spicy food, watermelon, raspberry leaf tea, almost everything we could think of (short of castor oil or blue or back cohosh.... don't recommend any of these!!!).
