Lots of false labor here, too. I've heard walking, sex, eating pineapple, and taking evening primrose oil (?) , but I think it's pretty much what PP said--baby will come when the time is right. GL!

I know so well what it's like to be "done." And with the last one I did take some herbal stuff that made my contractions start. And honestly I would not do that again. My labor was too fast. My body has recooperated my better when I had a longer labors.

swimming is more likly to stop it. Walking will prob. tire you out unless your body is ready. Sex and spicy food. Most things wont work until your body is ready.

I heard take a warm rag with castor oil and place on your stomach, which accomplishes the same thing as drinking castor oil but w/o the bad #2 results if you KWIM. I haven't tried this, though. I heard pineapple only works if it is time anyways. . .

Re: safe ways to get ur self in to labor?

ALL "natural" inductions only work if your body and baby are ready anyway. Let baby cook until he is ready instead of trying to force him out early. Boys are more likely to have breathing issues if born early so you're better off letting him cook a while longer.

Ditto that, and you are WAY too early to think about natural induction methods!
