Have any of you had a positive expierience with having s_x to bring on labor? I am 6 days past my due date, 2 cm dilated and 95% effaced and if she doesnt come between now and Thursday, they will induce! I don't want to be induced!!! Please let me know if having s_x has worked for any of you.

Oh heck no! I swear it was a man that came up with that theory. You name it, I tried it with my first, and she wasn't coming out for anything. I think when people say this or that worked for me to induce labor, it's a big fat coincidence. 2cm and 95% effaced is good progress though. Hang in there! :o)

Nope. It kicked me into false labor (with REAL-feeling contractions) and I spent several hours at the hospital. I was too scared to try again after that and ended up being induced. I would recommend trying the s_x, since induction wasn't, for me, the best avenue (very short, but painful).

Raspberry leaf tea or castor oil could do the trick, according to the "What to Expect" book, page 323. S_x did not work for me, and it wasn't fun. By the way, I was afraid to be induced, but we did it and everything was smooth and much easier than I ever expected.
