sex and let him come inside of you. The sperm helps dilate further. Lots of walking, drink plenty of fluids and raspberry leaf tea. I also had my membranes swept and had spicy food. Good luck!

i second not using castor oil--from experience! it did kick start my labor, but left me nauseated the whole time. awful.

PLEASE no matter what the other moms on here say, do NOT use castor oil! Very dangerous for the baby.
