What things can start labor? (Just for fun, Sacha!)
 
Everyone has their theories about what things can bring on labor...What worked for you?

Yes, we know that pitocin works :p But, just for fun, what are some old wives tales/ fun theories have you heard about?


I believe in the Taco Bell hot sauce theory! Mmmmmmm...and even if it doesn't work, at least you get to eat Taco Bell!

sex! :lol:
i had curry and pineapple juice with louie but he was pretty late and about ready to come anyway.
my mate swore by her birthing ball or running up and down stairs but my other mate spent an hour on the trampoline every day for a week and nothing happened :lol:

Ive never tried anything as both mine were early so I wasnt trying to induce labour lol. But I have heard playing with your nipples can help things along :unsure: :lol:

My coworkers at work are all telling me to eat Macaroni 'N Cheese with A1 steak sauce in it. It actually doesn't sound that bad.

If I get to my due date, I'll probably get more desperate and try some of these things.

Apparently fresh pineapple can help with it!

Eggplant Parmesan, raspberry tea, and Castor oil :eek: And yes, each calls for you to ingest it, including the Castor oil.

UMMM NOTHING!

I tried.... sex...pineapple...using the breast pump.... you name it. Pictocin was the only thing that worked :rolleyes:

They will come when they are ready...and nothing we do can get them here sooner :lol:
