  • Well there is a lot of sex, and walking, and spicy foods, or have your doctor give you a couple different kinds of drugs..

  • But yeah if you are then people say sex and walking. Sex broke my water (while we were) with my first but nothing worked with my second she came when she was ready.

  • Do NOT use Castor oil unless you want to crap all over the place and have the chance of your baby crapping before he/she is born which isn't good if they get it in their lungs.

  • Nipple stimulation can cause very painful contractions (more painful than they would normally be).
    I feel your pain....I'm 38 weeks myself and just want it to be done!
    Stay away from any advice involving herbal remedies - most of those are more dangerous than not.
    Sex and walking are probably the safest and at least one of them is fun (hey, at 8 1/2 months I don't want to walk across the room.....but still think DH is pretty hot.....)

  • Sex and walking are the best ways.

    But nothing is guaranteed.

    I'm 40 weeks and I've walked more and had more sex than ever.

    Your baby will come when it's ready.
