OLD WIVES TALES?!?!
Does anybody have any good theories on how to self induce labor? I am due today and I don't really feel very different from any other day of my pregnancy. I would rather her come out naturally (or with a few home remedies) as opposed to being induced on Monday.--yup, scheduled induction on Monday. So, lemme know what you've got. I've tried sex, jumping, squats, walking. I prefer ways that do not really require much other than physical activity but if you have anything else, give it to me.
Nipple stimulation - it releases oxytocin (the natural form of pitocin, used to induce labor). Also, tell your partner (provided you have one) that you love them, and be really sweet to him/her :) Or, you could trust your body to know when the baby is 'done,' and let her come naturally. 2 weeks past due is a bit long, but you'll probably pop before that :)
You could try Castor Oil.... 2 table spoons in orange juice or koolaid then in a couple hours 2 more table spoons. WARNING!!!!! THIS CAN CAUSE BABY TO BECOME STRESSED AND HAVE A BOWEL MOVEMENT WHILE INSIED, WHICH WOULD PROBALLY LEAD TO A C-SECTION! Check with your DR. Also it stimulates your bowel and you will have the sh*ts.
try laying on the bed and hikeing your legs up like the docter tells you to when you having the baby and then push and count to 10 do that 2 times unless it breaks your water the 1 time thats what my friend did to break her water because she didnt want to be indueced at the hospital it worked for her
