How About Prune Juice

Ok, still desperate. Has anyone tried prune juice to induce labor? I just bought some and I'm drinking a glass of it right now. I'm at my due date today...and it sucks because EVERYONE is asking..."Have you had the baby yet?" I feel kind of bad, like I let them down...=(

You do know that less than 5% of women deliver on their due dates? The medical profession calls it EDD (ESTIMATED date of delivery ) for a reason. Some would say it is just one more invention to drive pregnant women nuts -- LOL. As far as everyone in my family has said, the best way to induce labor is first to relax, and next to have a last, all out, b__w out round of s_x. Apparently that stimulates your hormones which might get labor going. The baby will come out when he or she is good and ready. Good luck.

I'd be a little worried about drinking a lot of prune juice. Sometimes it can cause a poop explosion! I gave some to my daughter once, just a little bit, because she hadn't pooped in five days, and she had the runs. We had to throw out her crib mattress (and yes, it had a vinyl cover).

Thanks. I drank two small gla__ses...and Jbear, that "poop explosion" thing made me laugh out loud! II don't think it takes a catastrophe to make you appreciate being pregnant. I wasn’t planning on getting pregnant at the time that I did…and also being 21 didn’t make it any easier on me, but I do know that God has blessed me with a miracle and I don’t need a miscarriage to tell me that I have a wonderful life growing inside of me. I appreciate every aspect of being a mother and am grateful of it. Everyone is different. Maybe for some people, it might take losing a baby to appreciate being blessed with one, but not me. I know what I’m blessed with and I’m so very happy to be a mom now. My stomach is gurgling at 2 am. I can't really sleep. At least i'm not having a poop explosion though! =)

Ok, let me just say that I had copied and pasted most of the "catastrophe" post in another forum...I was responding to a woman who was being kind of rude. Thanks. I drank two small gla__ses...and Jbear, that "poop explosion" thing made me laugh out loud!My stomach is gurgling at 2 am. I can't really sleep. At least i'm not having a poop explosion though! =) <~~~THAT was supposed to be ALL of my post. Sorry for the rambling.... = : /

Congratulations! You are almost there .. enjoy your last hours/days with your little one inside ... I have a good reason to motivate you to wait - the astrological sign right now is gemini - a hard sign to deal with (Dr. Jeckel and Mr. Hide syndrom!). On the 21 he/she will be a Cancer - a great sign, pa__sionate and full of life! :)
