what ever you try its all crap lol

I have tried...

Walks
Sex
Clary sage oil (massaged, baths in, sniffed... this is actually the only thing that STOPS my contractions long enough to sleep ect)
Pineapple (is meant to ONLY work if your already contracting but it doesn't)
hot baths (which i mix with the clary sage)
orgasms
nipple twiddling

Im actually waiting for my order of castor oil now as 2 weeks of labour im desperate!

I was googling stuff last night.. LOL! Glad I am not the only one.. I've tried all of the above...

My husband gave me a half ass foot massage last night... The pressure point in your left hand between your thumb and pointer finger. You are suppose to massage it for 15-20 minute to bring on contractions..

The website I was looking at also said Cumin tea!

Iv tried them all and they dont work like my gran said, she will come when she is rdy, iv ate loads of pineapple since 37wks, liqurice, chilli, spicy curry, orgasm, birthing ball, etc only thing i havent tried is sex, cos i just cant bring myself to do it. Iv had lots of cramps though that are rly painfulevery day, and fingers crossed, she will push my plug out and pop her waters, cos iv felt her feet pushing of my ribs at the same time i get foofe pains, so im sure she is trying to get out to lol.

i tried castor oil and it did fafff all.... lol did it more for constipation as didnt want to end up with piles...tmi i know but it didnt bring on labour.... i think it defo helped my lil miss drop some more as i was getting contractions all night but went to bed and they have totally stopped now although im still getting the ocassional twang but nothing major.... no form of home inducing proven to actually work as u cant be sure that labour wouldnt have happened anyway.... i might try some more castor oil again in a week or so see if it works that time but for now ive decided that my lil miss isnt ready to be born so no amount of me trying will make her come any sooner...

PLEASE dont try the castor oil one girls...there are so many horror stories on the internet & i just dont think its worth the risk to your babies - this isnt a method thats reccommended as can cause your babies to poo themselves which is poisonous to the little mights.....just get jiggy a few more times instead ;0) xx

The castor oil though people i know who have tried it all rate it..

I think the problem is that if you google things you WILL find more horror storys then anything for anything!
