Okay bri I have a very good tip for you to kick start your labor. This tip was just given to me yesterday and she warned me that it would only work if you're full turm.
Fill your tub with very warm water and lay in there face up ofcouse. That will help the baby relax and get in place then gently push the baby down rubbing your belly from your side just under your rib rest and repeat several times. I did that last night for about 30 mins. Then went to bed but  stayed up having cramps all night. I'm now at the hospital in labor. I'll be having my,baby boy soon
I really didn't think it would work but it did. let me know if you have a ? I'll try to respond asap.

The hot water shouldn't hit you belly much mainly your back. But if you're unsure don't do it. I thought about that too but I just trusted the lady that gave me the tip.

I took hot baths with my first and ive done so with this one... my doctor said if I start to feel dizzy get out but you should be fine... I did it, so far nothing... this baby just doesn't want to come.. I jumped on a trampoline earlier too for about 10 min... nothing
