I think I've given up. I may go ahead and open up my breast pump and give that a go. Partly because I'm curious lol. I've heard nipple stimulation causes horrible contractions, but at this point, I don't care. I want my baby to come naturally.
Still eating overly dark chocolate. And I will continue to drink the Raspberry Leaf Tea as it is also supposed to help with healing after birth.
Power walking and sex..... eh I'm too tired and at the end of my rope making attempts to get the baby out. I might do them if I feel like it.
.....Maybe I need to try some form of bribery?
Well I started out eating 4 cupcakes for breakfast.
Next up is gorging myself on some Olive Garden.
And then I might hit up Walmart.
I've given up. This kid will show up when its good and ready, on its own time. But at least I'm not overdue. Yet.
Ate spicy food
Broke out my pump
Took a nap
Bouncing on yoga ball
Learned my kid can fart on demand which resulted in a laughing fit for 10 mins...
Haha! My day consisted of:
Walked for a mile up and down a hill
Ate Indian food for lunch
Paced, because I swear that's all I can do
Took a nap
Ate all the pecans out of the butter pecan ice cream
Yeah....I've got nothing. Contractions while I was walking, then when I stopped they stopped. Lamesauce
I might bust out the pump and try that later....otherwise all these attempts are making me want to find some old wives and beat them.
I did lots of walking and red raspberry leaf tea. Also some spicy food. Getting the membrane sweep done at my doctors is what did the trick though. When I got home from the doctors office, I went for a long walk - and I started contractions a few hours later. I did another long walk when my contractions started. My labour wasn't too long - so maybe the walking helped.
Good luck to you.
Went to see a movie, and am relaxing .
Its too hot to go for a walk (I froze my gym membership for a few months)
I hate spicy food, and at work I sit on a yoga ball a few hrs a day.
We tried the sex thing, but DH could feel baby. So that ruined the moment (btw we weren't even to the sex part just "building" up to it!
From what I have seen/heard from my friends is that baby wouldn't come until he/she is ready no matter what you do! but boy- I am ready for baby!!!
walking, walking, walking...and some fun time with my hubby hehe

Seriously. I feel the same way. Who came up with half this crap. I've tried it ALL!
I'm yet to try anything really, I walk my dog a lot more but its honestly because moving feels better on my hips than sitting.
I figure technically I have a week (or up to 10 days depending on the ovulation and conception math) and I feel bad when I think of "forcing" him out before he wants to come out. I've gone 39 weeks, I can suffer another week or so.
I've tried everything: sex, tons of walking, squats, bouncing on a yoga ball for endless amounts of time, spicy food, pineapple, red raspberry leaf tea, driviing on a bumpy road, etc. etc. etc. and here I sit at 40 weeks, 3 days still pregnant.
I'm with the PP that suggested finding some old wives and showing them what's what.
