Walk a lot a lot...they say fresh pineapple too can jump start labor...spicy food...but the only ones i know that have worked on people around me are walking and sex but you said you are too sore for that and that could actually be a good thing...i remember when i was induced with my son and they had to break my water i was soo sooo sensative down there...maybe your cervix is thinning and baby is getting ready on his/her own...good luck and i hope you have a fast nice easy labor :)

sex is not what sends you into labor or makes you have contractions! its the orgasm. you can do that yourself girl! lol

i agree with twilight BUT sperm does contain prostaglandins, which does soften and ripen the cervix and can kick start labour (due to this reason and being on bedrest, i actually can't have sex right now -- have the opposite problem of yours!)

If you have a breast pump you can try to put it on a low setting to help with the nipple stimulation just becareful to not over do it and hurt them.  Do you have a yoga ball you can try to sit on that to help the baby come down too maybe bounce on it a little.  Also like someone posted you don't have to have sex to have an orgasm...and the sperm does help so maybe you and DH can "play" at the same time and finish the normal way at the end to get both....sorry if that's embarrassing or tmi just trying to help.

The beginning of labour feels a lot like period pain, you may be on your way! Good luck!

dont over do it... i would cut out the walking for now and wait it out... exhausting your body can slow down labor as well.. it happen to me twice...
