I'll try everything but sex

How do I do the nipple stimulation?
7552771 tn?1469929649
You can google nipple stimulation.  I took castor oil and my baby popped right out haha. Well not that easy but he came out within 12 hours of taking it. But walk a lot bouncing squats. Stay moving. Try to get them going being induced should be a last resort trust me ive been induced and had a natural birth and ill never want to be induced again it hurt way less going natural

I know I really do t want to be induced because they give you that pitocin and I don't want that. I just want to go into labor on my own.

Well castor oil worked for me. And i know some women who started getting contractions with nipple stimulation. Or you could try having an orgasm that can cause contractions. And lots of walking.

Now I've tried the orgasms... Plenty lol. Still no contractions.

I wouldn't try castor oil. Please don't recommend that! Very bad stories look it up. If your baby isn't ready then the baby won't come until its time. 39 weeks is full term now so let the baby bake a little more.

Castor oil can cause vomiting and intense diarrhea which in turn can cause dehydration everyone reacts different. But it has been used since ancient times in egypt. Yes you should read up on it and make youre own decission about it. I made that decission to use it after i researched it. But i did take it in 2 seperate small doses and stayed very hydrated.

Castor oil isn't an option for me at all what so ever so that's some advice Im not going to take. I've been eating pineapples and walking.
