Take a hot bath or try some jumping jacks. I jumped on the spot once and went into labour at 36 weeks.

note to all. I did everyone of those tricks. You can try them but no guarantee. My son said No mom, Im not coming. I walked 2 miles, jogged, skipped, jumping jacks, had plenty of sex, took caster oil which only made me vomit profusely and get no sleep at 10 months pregnant, oh and be on the toilet at the same time. NOT pretty, dont recommend that. I did spicy food too. You name it. Its really just up to your body. Try them all, its fun anyway.

You can get a pedicure and have them do the pressure points while there at it on your feet and legs! That worked both times for me = )

ok this might sound really weird but when I was due with my daugher my husbands boss told him to try to stimulate my nipples and it would put me into labor I of course didnt believe him. Well she used to be a nurse so one night we tried it and sure enough I had my daugher that morning.

the baby will come when he/ she is ready.. u could be dialated for a long time before anything happens.. I was dialaited 3-4 cm for 1 1/2 months before my son came into the world.. with my 3rd delivery I was 4 cm a week before she decided to enter the world.. but as others said walking and lots of sex help speed along the process.. good luck with the delivery

I was two days away from being induced and wanted to avoid it at all costs so I started looking for things online to start labour on its own and came across acupressure to induce labour. I was having the odd contraction so when I came across this idea I figured that maybe it would be just enough to get the contractions to come on stronger and more regular. So that evening I tried the preassure points that were recomended and sure enough the next morning at 6am I woke up in labour and had my daughter at 10am that morning!! It might be worth a shot for you!! Hope something works, Good Luck!!

I walked about a mile with my first baby and that helped labor progress a lot faster. Also, like everyone else has said, sex usually works also. Good luck and best wishes. :)
