Eat lots of pineapple, walk, and have sex. (and it helps if you both orgasm together from what I have read) All I can say is that it worked for me both times. :)

You are almost done! I was 5 days overdue with my first and everyday after my due date felt like an eternity! Good luck Momma!

Yup.  Not like there's a timer that goes "ding" and you pop that little bun out of the oven.  Some take a little extra baking.  I'm sure your OB is keeping an eye on things and will induce if he ir she thinks it's necessary.

And I agree with Toxic.Stardust...even if you do those things, if your body isn't ready, they won't work. Just hang in there.

My first was born at 41 wks 6 days, nothing worked at speeding it up until my body was ready.
