Having sec in certain positions and having your partner play which your nipples stimulates the natural toxin in your body I forget what it is actually called but it is said to help, also walking can increase your contractions after u start, there are a bunch of crazy things u can actually try, but my mother delivers babies and the nipple thing is number 1 on her list

Acupuncture is effective and safe. It'll only work when baby's truly ready :)

Sex helps a lot! But take long walks. My doctor advice me to take castor oil poop everything out but it suppose to induce the labor just mix it up with orange juice once I did the next day my water broke lol I was so happy!

Do not take castor oil, you will regret it, especially if you plan to have people in the room during your delivery. It relaxes the bowels ( yes it can contractions but that is a side effect to relaxing the bowels) Your lo will come when he/ she is ready.

Babies come when their ready. Try not to rush it as every minute plays into their development. Being pregnant is hard but it's also so beautiful. After ur baby gets older u will miss being preggo! Sounds silly but I miss it cus they grow so fast. Cherish every moment cus u only get it one time.

I gained 52 pounds total & 47 of it was during the last month & 1/2, so I was miserable! I couldn't stand up without falling forward b/c the weight was all in my belly & boobs! I didn't try anything, probably b/c it was an ordeal just to get out of bed! I've always heard, from basically everyone, that sex is the best (of the safe/natural ways). My son was born 2 days late & the lack of sex may have been a contributing factor. It's not easy to have sex when you're single & VERY pregnant lol ;)

Orange juice and castor oil. Equal parts. Must drink together or else you'll just poop. After drinking massage the heel and ankle of each foot until you get steady contractions. This is the only thing that worked for me and I tried everything.

Walk and eat spicy foods. I did both the day before I went into labor.

Absolutely nothing worked for me, even when I got induced it took forever to start contractions, he clearly didn't want to leave the house (me) :)
