Need to start labor!

Hi, im 37 weeks (full term) and I just wanted some ideas to start my labor! Im so done being pregnant lol. I dont want to do castor oil really, id rather not poo in docs hands lmao, unless its guaranteed to work. Which I dont think it can be guaranteed. But ill do almost anything else..besides herbs, I dont trust them. But yeah, any ideas are so welcome! Thanks!!!

Try to stick it out another 2 weeks.  There's a huge difference in health outcomes of 37 weeks vs. 39 weeks.  Plus induced labor is often longer, more painful, and more likely to result in c-section.  BTW I am 39+1 and seriously feeling your pain!  Good luck.
