Do not take the castor oil. I would rather wait it out than sit on the toilet all night.
Sex, walking, bouncing on a ball, driving on a bumpy road but at the end even if you do all these thing the baby is only coming out if he/ she is ready so enjoy your last couple days of quiet and sleep

There is LOADS of ways which are meant to bring on labour here is a few ways
Acupuncture involves the insertion of needles into specific points of your body. This is thought to stimulate the energy within your body to act on a specific organ function or system.

We don't know exactly how castor oil works. It's thought that it stimulates your tummy and therefore stimulates your uterus (womb), kick starting labour. However, be aware that taking castor oil may make you nauseous and give you diarrhoea.

Curry is often suggested as a means to bring on labour. Eating spicy food may stimulate your tummy and therefore stimulate your uterus into action.

Pineapple contains the enzyme bromelain which is thought to help soften your cervix and bring on labour. Eating large amounts will probably stimulate your tummy, which could also stimulate your uterus.

Herbal remedies such as blue cohosh and black cohosh are much stronger than homeopathic remedies and should be used with caution. Blue cohosh in particular has been linked to complications for babies at birth. You should get professional guidance before using herbal remedies as they are much stronger than homeopathic remedies.

Homeopathic remedies such as pulsatilla are often used to stimulate labour. There is lots of anecdotal evidence from mums-to-be who have found them helpful. However, talk to your doctor or midwife before trying them.

Nipple stimulation is when you gently rub or roll your nipples to encourage the start of contractions. The idea is to stimulate the suckling of your baby. This releases oxytocin, a hormone which causes contractions to start.

Raspberry leaf can be taken as a tea or in tablet form. It is thought it may stimulate your uterus and encourage labour.

Having sex can be tricky when you have a big bump. But it could trigger the release of oxytocin, a hormone which causes contractions. Having an orgasm could also stimulate your uterus to get labour going.

The pressure of your baby's head pressing down on your cervix from the inside could stimulate the release of oxytocin, a hormone which causes contractions. Being upright also encourages your baby to move down onto your cervix.

Here is a selection of other methods (some of them a little bizarre) that other mums are said to have found helpful. There is no evidence for any of these and frankly we are not convinced!
Blowing up balloons: the theory is that the build up of abdominal pressure encourages labour to start.
Bouncing on your birth ball or driving your car down a bumpy road would seem to put the same faith in shaking things up a little.
Get a weepy video and have a good cry.
Wear your best knickers (sod's law will ensure that your waters break in them).
1. Primrose oil pills need to be taken around 35 weeks or so to soften the cervix. You can't just take one and let it work overnight.
2. The castor oil is extremely dangerous and can actually cause the baby to poo inside the womb which would than be very dangerous and fatal to the baby if left untreated. Not to mention it doesn't work and will give you chronic diarrhea. I know this because of a few stories I've heard, one almost resulting in the loss of her baby.Its an old wives tale and technology and information has advanced a lot. Back in the day they used to do Xrays on pregnancies instead of Ultrasounds. Xrays aren't safe. So goes to show their methods weren't the safest, but its what they knew. Now we have the knowledge and hopefully common sense to know better.
3. I know its not what you want to hear but either way whatever you try probably isn't going to be very safe because the baby will either come on its own or by the Dr. But be prepared trying to induce labor can often result in an emergency csection. Only things that might help is a long walk, bumpy car ride, sex because sperm has a chemical that induces labor, eating hot spicy food, getting on all fours and rocking back and forth- yes its a birth position but meant to help, warm relaxing bath,etc.
Also your only 39 weeks your not 40 weeks yet. I would just wait.. and trust me i know its hard.. Im pregnant with twins so i know what it feels like. My body is taking a massive beating. its my first pregnancy and my uterus has already had a bleed from the rapid rate of stretching. Im measuring 20 weeks and im only 18 weeks and 5 days. So i know it can be frustrating.

DO NOT listen to the person above me -_- do not drive over the curb. The most natural way to kick up labor is unprotected sex believe it or not. It is a good ol natural way to move things along. Two things go in your favor. Semen is a natural cervix thinner so it will cause dilation to upstart. And if you get off and your uterus contracts that also induces the body to make hormones for labor. Some doctors also say if you stimulate a woman's nipples for thirty Min's that also helps So sex plus the oil should help. Only thing about the oil is it does cause most woman to poop during birth :P

a bumpy car ride does help. i drank hot sauce and ate fresh pinapple with two of my pregnancies and went into labor 4 hours later. i did not try castor oil because it can make the baby poop inside of you too and if he breaths that in it can make him sick. that scared me from taking it. you can try all this stuff but if the baby is not ready unfortunately it wont happen good luck

Sex and nipple stimulation worked for me 2 times.When the nipples are stimulated and you have an orgasm it can start contractions.Won't hurt..give it a try.As for the castor oil,I have heard that it works too but have never tried that I would be scared as well.

I was just as tired as you at 38 weeks but you have to let your body do it's thing I ended up having baby naturally the day before I was due and your due date is an estimate not an exact figure....try to relax that tends to help as well it worked for me

Go to the doc and find out if you REALLY need to go into labor right now.
My mom didn't go into labor, and needed a c section. Go to the doc if you are really worried

Originally Answered: is it true that pineapple can help u go into labor?
I never heard that before but if it was true then I wouldn't have had to be induced with my last baby. I craved pineapple like crazy and ate it till I got sores in my mouth from the acid and then ate some more. I love pineapple. When I was pregnant with him I tried lots of things once I reached the 41 week mark and none of it worked. I believe that babies come when they want unless modern medicine intervenes.
