I need to know what your old wive’s tales are for getting labor to start. Little nugget was due on June 13th! He is our first grandchild; mommy is getting ready. I want to send her these ideas to keep her spirits up.

Well, when DD was ready to have the last GS, she ate pineapple. Then we made "labor Cookies" https://cookpad.com/us/recipes/33814...-labor-cookies. She drove on a bumpy road. Finally, she was induced due to high BP. She tried castor oil with the first baby... didn't do much.

I'd just let nature take its course.

My 2nd was 3 weeks late, I tried ALL the things! None of them worked, he arrived on his own schedule and has done things on his own schedule for the last 40+ years.

I agree. My DD was 10 days overdue—seemed like a lot. Later she didn’t want to leave her crib for a big girl mattress.

I swear, if I didn't get induced, my daughter (19 months) would still be hanging out in there.

After 3 days of induction mine still refused to budge. They had to go in after him. I think he must of had a book in there.

My daughter was 10 days past due and my son went 42 weeks...clearly I have no idea how to get a baby to hurry up!

I tried spicy food (I live in New Mexico, so believe me, we have spicy!), bumpy road car ride, sex, nipple stim, Achilles massage...nada. they come when they are good and ready and not a minute before! I feel for her. That 10th month of pregnancy is HARD.

Teddi!

I agree with letting nature take its course. Due dates are really just suggestions (but, man, do I remember how hard it is to go past that fake date!) Wishing the mommy a safe and happy birth!

Both my kids were at least 10 days late...let nature take its course. Best way.

Amended advice: tell her to have the most awkward sex of her life.
