Ok i have heard that s_x is good for getting labor going but i am 38 weeks and cant think of a single position that would be comfortable...any suggestions?

It wasn't comfortable, but I was desperate, we did it from behind in the shower. It didn't work for labor though.

Try it with you on top, or doggie-style. Nipple stimulation is supposed to be good for starting labor too.

I tried it, but it didn't work for me. I went 2 weeks overdue.

How exactly can you stimulate the nipples good enough to start labor? I've also tried s_x, and it never worked for me. What worked for me was my doctor rupturing the mucus membranes with his fingers. It hurt!

What I read in "What to Expect when you're Expecting" was to stimulate your nipples for three hours a day. Basically, nipple stimulation is supposed to make your body produce oxytocin, the natural equivalent of pitocin (the drug used to induce labor). I never got to try it...had to have my first baby at 36 weeks.
