  • Oh man...I tried EVERYTHING I could think of with my last pregnancy to urge it on..little stinker still was 6 days late,lol.
    Heres some of the things I aatempted:
    Galloping up and down the stairs (I tried running but thought I was going to die or break my body in half haha)
    Squats(like a gazillion and don't be suprised if your inner thighs or sore the next couple days,lol)
    Walking walking walking walking walking etc etc etc,lol...bring a water bottle
    Bouncing up and down on a huge bouncy ball(that was kinda fun and I looked like a beach ball on top of a beach ball haha)
    Leg Lunges (that had to be a funny sight cuz everyone that seen me doing it was laughing really hard for some reason)
    And finally..
    I gave the baby an eviction notice..told him he's got 3 days to get the heck out! LOL (of course, he didnt listen)
    Good Luck...keep the patience ...and it will all happen soon enough!

  • Walk, walk, walk. It makes labor easier too. I heard sex could work to, but late in my pregnancy.. I was not interested in sex at all! lol

  • Natural only? Wait til baby's done cooking. A friend of mine is in the hospital right now praying her heart out that her baby stays in for 13 more weeks. I find this question quite sad.
