Just so you know:

Pineapple - doesn't work even when you eat the whole thing.
Pressure points - no such luck.
Sex - many positions with variation in "vigor" produces nothing.
Nipple stimulation - waste of time...;)
Spicy food - causes heartburn only!
Red Raspberry Leaf Tea - Drinking 1 pot every day for weeks...why??
Walking - Sore back but that's the highlight of it.
Exercise Ball - fun like a trampoline used to be but does nothing else.
Stripping membranes - painful with cramping but no labor.
Talking to baby = talking to wall.

My "to do" list for this week:
Evening Primrose Oil
Induction on Wednesday

#3 EDD WAS FEB 25..... Yellow Team!

Oh no! Sounds like your LO has found a comfy place and just refuses to budge :( I hope baby decides to give the outside world a try before Wed. if not at least you can see the light at the end of this and know it won't be longer than next week :) LV to you!

JMO, but I wouldn't bother with the Evening Primrose Oil. According to the info I've gotten from my OB's office on it, it can take weeks to work, if it works at all.

Good luck! I really hope LO comes out on his/her own before Wednesday.

I appreciate all the great info! I was going to buy myself a couple of fresh pineapples for the reason I have heard they may help! Sex... is just not working for me anymore lol! Well, good luck with the oil and the induction!
