Hey I figured it out all of us are having Taurus babies and taurus are very stubborn thats why our babies are taking there time, I was born 4/21 my mom said I was 20 days overdue because I really wanted to be a Taurus.

I was told by many people it's actually healthy to drink RED wine during pregnancy, now don't over do it, but i heard it's perfectly safe and even good for the baby and mother. I'm at the end of my pregnancy and i haven't yet had any wine, but i'm desperate to finally give birth i think i'll resort to pretty much anything.. Good luck

No! I haven't heard of that. The only advice I can give you is to wait. The baby will come. I have 4 kids and they all were 2 weeks late, I went from drinking castor oil, to jumping double dutch, my babies came when they were ready and not a minute too soon. Take care and good luck!

I'm 39 weeks and have had a few gla__ses of wine within the last couple of weeks (not more than one gla__s /time though) and it hasn't started my labor. I didn't drink it to induce... only to relax a little and because I was told it's healthy for you and has no harmful affects on baby. However, I agree with maid... the baby will come when it's ready. Trying to induce your own labor before the baby is ready can be dangerous especially if you're before 37/38 weeks. I know it's hard (anxiety sets in) because I, myself, have tried nipple stimulation, lots of walking, and even s_x to induce mine. NOTHING worked. I believe some methods working for some women to induce.. but now truly believe they worked, because they were "ready" to deliver anyways and these things might've helped in getting the process started that would've started naturally in another day or two. At least that's what I'm going to tell myself because otherwise I get jealous that none of it worked for me. Being that I'm now 39 weeks and have tried for the last 2 weeks, I'm saying to hell with it. It only makes the anxiety worse because I'll do something like nipple stimulation.. and "O here comes a contraction, is this the time??? Did it work??" only to be let down a 1/2 hour later when they subside. I'm just going to wait patiently now for her. My doctor told me she wont let me go past 2 weeks and perhaps even 1 week if my cervix has started to progress. So 3 weeks TOPS... I can wait!

sara - July 7

i am 38 weeks pregnant and i lost my mucus plug 3 days ago. i have been drinking rasberry leaf tea since sunday and had s_x. i have also tried nipple stimulation but no luck. he still moves around alot and likes to kick me as hard as possible making my stomach look like something out of alien. he is stubborn just like his father so i dont hold out much hope that it will be soon. does anyone have any tips on how to get asleep at night as i just cant drift off.

Sara- yau can try benadryl to help you go to sleep. my childbirth teacher said it was ok as long as you don't take more than the recommended dose. I take 1/2 the dose about 1-2 x a week if i really need sleep

Drinking can cause learning disabilities and a host of other problems. To bring on labor drink castor oil and OJ or any other kind of juice.As long as the baby is ready it can start the labor process. Just don't over do or you will have the runs also.


Jenny - July 13

I took castor oil at 1pm yesterday and started having regular contractions about 3:30 this morning and I am still having them about 3-5 minutes apart. I just came back from my doctor and she told me to wait and see if the contractions become more painful. So I dont know if the castor oil works or not yet

monica - July 17

to ashley, why would you want to induce labor at 35 weeks? I am 38 weeks and dont want to try anything to induce labor.,...this is my second one so I am scared. Plus I am really enjoying my maternity leave time.
