Here are some things that I found you: Sexual intercourse - This works in two ways to induce labor. First, female orgasm can bring on contractions. Second, semen contains prostaglandins. Prostaglandins work to help ripe and soften the cervix. Nipple stimulation - Stimulating the nipples triggers the production of natural oxytocin. Oxytocin contracts the uterus. Accupressure - Accupressure may be helpful in inducing labor. Some pressure points you can try are the roof of your mouth, the webbing of your fingers between your pointer finger and thumb, and above the ankle about four fingerspaces above is a pressure point. Stripping the membranes - This can only be done by a health care provider. Your doctor or midwife will seperate the bag of waters from your cervix and this is thought to help encourage labor to start. Raspberry Leaf Tea - Rasberry leaf tea is not actually known for it's labor inducing properties, but it is believed to be helpful in toning the uterus and helping with labor. Cinnamin stick tea - Take cinnamin sticks and boil them into a tea and drink. It actually tastes good so even if it doesn't bring on labor it may help you to relax. Evening primrose oil - Evening primrose oil comes in small capsules similar to vitamin E. It is believed to help soften and ripen the cervix. Walking - Walking may help to get baby to drop into proper position. Visualization/relaxation - Relaxation can help with labor induction. Try doing relaxation exercisers. They are also good practice for when labor actually begins. Pineapple, cumin tea, eggplant parmesan, and spicy foods - are another thing you can try.

Hey, if you can do squats without falling over, more power to ya, but be careful. When I was due any day, I know my balance was not good enough to be doing squats..I would have tipped over lol. Just try taking a long walk. Forty five minutes maybe? Certainly don't overdo it. I walked like crazy in my last 3 weeks. Starting in my last week I took hour long walks like 3 times a day, but baby wasn't ready I guess so it didn't do a thing. I ended up going into labor in a storm that had last 4 days and I hadn't been able to get outside to walk at all.

Actually all the kids would probably get the same party even if their birthdays are close together. I get stuck with a pumpkin pie with candles since mine is right around Thanksgiving! (they say it's just easier that way). As for the labor try sex with a lot of nipple stimulation, go for walks and eat a big plate of Thai curry! I'm not sure if any of those things work but it's better then just waiting around...and your hubby should be very happy to get sex before the LONG wait after the baby comes. If he's up to it, do it three or four times for good measure! Good luck and congrats!!

43 weeks? I am surprised they let you go that long...somewhere after 41 weeks the placenta starts to break down...but if nothing is happening by now, I don't think all that walking in the world is going to change that. some women just don't go into labor on thier own, and since you are 43 weeks it looks like you are one of those women (with this pregnancy at least...every one is different). no worries...just wait for the induction! good luck and congrats! (maybe call and ask if they have an opening on monday...so they won't have the same birthday..if that is possible)

I cant believe the doctors are letting you go three weeks over due. You must be so uncomfortable. My theory is that if it hasn't come by now or by walking for 8 hours, then you probably wont be able to make it. Stop walking and put your feet up! You will need all the energy that you can get for the next few days. Good luck

Good Luck listening to everyone's suggestions but a baby will come out when it comes out. Unless induced or cesarian, it'll hang out. It should be induced though at 43 weeks as it's not safe for the baby...

Loosing weight fast is always an unhealthy thing. There are many diets who tell you that you can loose a lot of weight in no time. And it is working, but you are doing no good to your body. And there's also the Jojo-effect. The best thing to loose and hold a healthy weight is healthy food, less sugar, lots of drinking water, and sports. Diet has to begin in your head. And you already started to think about your nutrition. That's an important step. It is too easy just to make a magazine-diet for 2-3 weeks and loose some weight. But it will come back soon again. If you are over-thinking your nutrition and activity, you will have a constantly good result. Isn't that much better and healthier than a crash-diet ? - Healthy life every day! Take care, :-)
