His timing. Patience is something I struggle with so this is a good time for me to just rest in Him and His perfect timing.
That was exactly what I journaled about last night...waiting on the Lord's perfect timing. I don't know why I'm so impatient with this one - I am still about a week "early."

As far as "natural" induction methods, I know most of them are not proven and if your body isn't ready, then it won't work anyway, but I do wonder about sex. (sorry, I really do wonder!) I mean, how much is really necessary for the prostaglandins to start working? I already have been drinking a tea with RRL in it most of my pregnancy and I already walk pretty vigorously pushing a double stroller for 2 miles most days. My BH contrax do get stronger in the evenings and at night, but they are not crampy like I remember them being. Just tightness. We'll see......
