My mom was a month over with my sisters and I so I think it's a matter of patience. Personally as long as I am still getting good movement from the baby I will try and hold of induction as long as possible. If I were to "induce" I would use massage (with lavendar and jasmine oils), accupressure, chiropractic techniques, sex, and nipple stimulation first, move on to the cohoshes from there. If that didn't work I'd head to evening primrose oil and castor oil. And if all that doesn't work baby just wasn't meant to come yet!
