My guy came 3 weeks early but I didn't do anything to make him come early, I dont think??...I got a pregnancy massage on a Wednesday which gave me a tiny bit of cramping, on that Friday I got an internal from the dr to check dilation was 3 cm, had bloody show on Saturday (it started very light on Friday tho) and was in full blown labor in the wee hours of the morning that Sunday.
Pregnancy massage or internal check by the dr?? one of those might have sped things up for me, I'm not too sure.

If you're thinking of now, at 34 weeks, that kinda scares me! Wait til 37 weeks then try to self induce. Im sure the baby would be ok, but why take the chance? Besides, if you were to go into labour now, the dr's would prob try to stop labour. I know how you feel thou, Im only 30 weeks and had enough . xxx

Wish I could help hun, but I don't think baby really comes until they're ready I've been trying! Even tried my breast pump because apparently it can start contractions, but only got out a few drops of colostrum..then freaked that I wouldn't replenish it if I kept pumping, so have stopped before it had the chance to do too much

Desperate as I am, I figure all that's left to do is wait, really

Unless your body is ready nothing will work. If your body/baby/cervix arent ready you can walk alll youwant, eat all the funny foods you want, have all the sex you want and it wont do a thing. BUT if your body IS ready and your cervix favorable, sex, nipple stimulation, walking, spicey foods can all help jump start labor. But wait until 37-38 weeks!!

I agree that you have to wait until 37ish weeks before self inducing- but i have to wonder about the above comment, because i know of 2 other women on this forum who got a pregnancy massage and went into labour within 48hrs!!! must be because it is sooo relaxing. im actually going to book myself in for one to see if it works lol

I wouldn't recommend trying to speed things up till at least 39 weeks- doctors here are now only booking C-sections after 39 weeks as before that there is a much greater risk of breathing problems (and associated brain damage / mortality). You'll go into labour when you go into labour.

I know it feels like forever.
