Nothing works unless the baby's ready I've tried everything and nipple stimulation worked only when I was 42 weeks so I think he was just ready.

When I say everything I ment everything except all the herbs because those are really dangerous

Sex and walking.

Semen actually helps soften your cervix.

i tried the Castro oil and it worked. its not the best tasting stuff in the world and it takes literally about six hours to kick in but at 11:00 that night i went into labor.

I ummm yeah...I took a shower and shaved my legs. I was kind of there in the shower like "fuck that pain there is getting annoying." Then I told my mom and she asked why I didn't wake her sooner...duh I was showering lol...

I also tried everything short of castor oil.....

The doctor asked us at my appt when I was 40 weeks 3 days if we had tried sex and DH jump up, pointed at me and said "she made me"...it was hilarious...

I was induced at 41 weeks, she was born at 41 weeks 2 days.

Why are you trying to induce your labor?Maybe its just me but I dont get why you would want to do that.
