I am in the same boat. Actually today is my due date and nothing is happening. I too have tried everything...sex..walking..swimming..squats...castor oil. I too heard that raspberry leaf tea and fresh pinneapple could work. I am going to try the pinneaple today. I figure it cant hurt. I dont know what else to try either. I hope U have UR baby soon. I definately know how frustrating it is when UR at this point and nothing is happening. I know I am very anxious to have this baby...I am so darn uncomfortable!!! Good Luck

I have heard of a lot of people drinking castor oil. Gross, but it works I guess.
