I'm 39 weeks today and ready to be done. I haven't had one contraction or any indication of labor.  I know the old wives tales anyone have any that work.

 you're body will let you know when it's going in labor. just lots of walking will help bring the baby down and possibly start softening your cervix and dialate. lots and lots of walking. Good luck! I wish I was 39 wks

I know that time works really well LOL...other than that everything that is said helps some, but not others...not really reliable.

I did every single one (even castor oil) and my baby was born at 41 weeks 5 days.  I don't think anything will put you into labor if your body isn't ready for it.  Some things may encourage your body along, but nothing is a sure thing.

Real + safe  =  walking and sexual activity of any kind...     (the more orgasms the better)
