40 weeks tomorrow

I'm trying everything I can think of to help bring on labor. My doctor told me to absoulutly not have sex because my mucus plug has been coming out for the last 2 weeks. Is there anything that I can do to help bring in labor.

A couple of old wives tales suggest drinking pineapple juice or bouncing on a yoga ball
