How the hell do I induce labor!!! I am 2 week's past due Dr. Will not induce and I feel like crap. Sex is not working and neither is spicy food. My 4 year old son keeps telling me I look like i'm gona pop. And to make thing's worse I have not slept in about a month.

I was 11 days past due date, I was sposta be born on valentines, but I was born on th 25th. They told my mom if I want born by friday they were gonna induce her and take me out, but on thursday night (a couple days after her seeing doc) I decided I wanted to come out...

Thats what my mom tells me about me.. I find it kinda interesting.. Weird thing is thou, my oldest brother had the same due date as me but 5 years before me, but he was 3 days early (11th)

so maybe you will be lucky and your baby will decide to come out if you scare it out.. Lol

I'm really sorry, you must be so fed up with it.

You are induced if you are 10 days over due here in oz.

I thought it was dangerous to go past 2 weeks post due date. Have lots of sex and then walk around a lot!!!

I am not advising anyone to do this but my girlfriend has 4 kids, 3 of which were overdue. She swears by moving her couch. She said for everyone of them she moved the couch and the same day went into labor. Like I said I don't advise that because of the potential hazards but that's what she said worked for her.

Lol! A lady I work with, said that her grandma swears by mopping the floor. It is funny to hear how many "myths" there are, but hey, whatever works right?!

I've seen 1/2 cup of cod liver oil, 1/4 cup of orange juice and a scoop of ice cream work within 5 hours.

I was totally pessimisitc about the whole induce yourself until I saw my friend drink this concoction!!! Lol...The ice cream is to make the taste not so harsh...

She was 13 days past her due date when she drank the mix...She went into active labor later that day!!!
