  • jump around like a chicken.

    simmer down. your baby ain't done bakingl.

  • Nothing has worked for me so far.  I've tried spicy food, pineapple, going for walks, etc.  Nada.  Spicy food gave me a couple of contractions - but no luck. 

  • i tried spicy food, walking, pedicure, sex, pinapple, red rasberry leaf tea, and bounced on my excersice ball for a while and i am still here but had a lot of progress since last appt. I am almost completely thinned out.. so i think it def. helped a lot. They are expecting me to have LO no later than Thursday.. we shall see though
