I have to ageee with the previous poster on this one. Im 40 weeks 3days pregnant with my first baby and I believe they only come when they are ready. I can tell you though from my experience pineapple did not work for me, lol but it cured my  craving. I ate almost half of a fresh pineapple! Also it gave me heartburn. Also at 38 weeks your baby has a bit more growing to do and I wouldnt try anything thing to induce just yet. Hang in there the finish line is close  :)

try walking a lot! and once you start having real contractions don't stop walking until you are ready to push, I did it and I swear to you I barely felt the contractions, but I'm sorry to tell you that after that its hell, but very well worth it <3
