Try power walking and don't drink any thing for about 2 hours or so. Your body will began to start contractions because of dehydration. Once they start you can start drinking water.  Surprisingly, dehydration brings on pre term labor, it can help with the real thing. Good luck Sweetie ♥

Whatever you do, DON'T take Castor Oil! Very bad for the baby. It can casus the baby to have a bowel movement inside you and can possibly digest it which can end to death for your baby. Baby will come when baby is ready. I know that you are anxious to see your baby, but none of the above techniques will work unless your body and baby is truly ready.
