I know how miserable you are. My first was two weeks past her due date and all the rest were pretty much on time....nobody came early except for the last who we induced on purpose....(I do not recommend inducing just because. Even with drugs, labor was most difficult of all prior pregnancies and even ahad epi with last one)....Soon enough baby will come and you will have a whole new set of reasons to be exhausted....just be patient and nature will bring baby into this world in due course...good luck...

curb walking.. walk with one foot on the curb and the other on the road then switch legs after a while..

I'm certainly not saying don't try what you want...but I did TONS of research on inducing labor...both naturally and with drugs at the hospital, here's what I got from it all. Basically, if your body isn't ready to go into labor, nothing you do will make it happen. The stories you hear of women who did this or that and their labor started...were very close to their due dates and had babies and bodies that were ready to be done with pregnancy. Good luck, I'd leave suggestions but nothing worked for me, in fact, as soon as I stopped trying to put myself into labor...my water broke two days later...on my due date! lol.
