Has been changed to Wednesday and there is more than one reason why this will NOT work for me. So ladies I need all possible natural induction methods you've got. I'm starting with fresh pineapple castor oil raspberry leaf tea and a walk. No sex because dh has a runny nose.

Some people say nipple stimulation (look it up online in regards to labor; needs to be done a specific way), some people say spicy food. Good luck!

I heard of women using their breast pump for nipple stimulation to start labor....actually watched it on one of those baby shows on TV. There is also that famous eggplant parmesan recipe.

walking, lots of walking, either it'll work or it won't lol! I walked religiously with my first and nothing ever happened, but walking is what kept dilating me with this one and I only ever contracted if I was up moving.
Had a pedicure with a really good foot massage (requested this so that they MIGHT hit some pressure points) and my water broke right away. Maybe dh could rub your feet and lower legs instead of sex since he has the runny nose.

I drank a whole bunch of pineapple juice and contrax started. But I think the biggest thing that helped me was using my breast pump, it certainly sent my hormones into overdrive. Baby started moving more and my contrax kicked into gear.
