Those labor cookies look delicious, but I think there's probably about zero chance they will actually work. I've never heard of any of those ingredients except the cayenne as labor inducers, and there's hardly any cayenne in them. Still, it's something to do while you wait for labor, and that (plus the delicious results) probably makes it worth trying! It certainly can't hurt.

Hmmm, those cookies are tempting! My labor petered out again today. I'm super annoyed, especially since I know I've got another long sleepless, contraction filled night ahead of me. I walked and walked today and it didn't get me anywhere, except making my feet swell.
I'm not trying eggplant. We grew it in our garden and I ate it all summer long, I think it's the basil in the parm that is supposed to do the trick anyway. A spoonful of pesto might work better!
I really don't want to get desperate and take anything like castor oil, but if this keeps up, I'm going to be backed into a corner because my DH scheduled to leave on a 5 day trip soon...I really don't think I will make it 5 days, especially if I have to run the household by myself And I don't want to be induced and end up on pitocin. Ugh...

Time to send the kids tp grandma's or somewhere, and for you and DH to hit the sheets also, pull out that pump. Gl. I have an ob appt this morning and am going to talk to him about stripping my membranes today. I know it can just cause discomfort, but seriously, Im already in so much pain from where wee dudes head is, and contractions, that anything to get things 'active' is a welcome thing
