What worked for you?

Towards the end of your pregnancy, did you do anything that you felt "brought on" your labor? Or did you just go with the natural flow?

  • I pulled a reverse fat bastard. I looked at my belly and said "Get out of my belly". Or it could have been all the sex. I am sorry, but sex when you are that far along is not easy. I don't think it is the semen that induces labor but all the maneuvering.

  • My last pregnancy I had sex to make labor come. It either worked or I was going to have her anyways. Don't know which one it was.

  • It's hard to say. All the anger and obsessive cleaning that "brought on" my 2nd labour could have caused it, or the fact that labour was coming on could have caused the rush of energy and hormonal anger (well, no-- I'm still sure that anger was justified!)

  • We just had to wait. When I was about two days overdue, we tried EVERYTHING. We had sex (which I hated for like half my pregnancy, so I wasn't into it at all), we went and walked around a mall, an electronics store and a pet store for HOURS, and we ate pineapples for dinner one night. I ended up going 9 days over.

  • I was 42 weeks and 5 days with my last one and was induced. Hoping to avoid that this time around.
