Cumin tea?

Anybody tried cumin tea to help bring on labor? Im 38+4 and doc says he will induce me at 40 wks due to me having kidney stones that arent passing so im curious of any ways to really help labor speed up.

Ive tried sex A LOT lol. I get maybe 2 contractions and thats it. :/

Something besides sex would be great because its extremely uncomfortable for me right now. Thats why i was wondering about tea or something else. Ive walked, done squats, and nothing.

I've heard spicy food, I'm in the same boat. I'm tiny and carrying a baby is pretty painful lol sex doesn't help for me either. And I've heard of red raspberry leaf tea

Me too im 4'11 and 115 pre pregnancy. My 2nd was 8lbs at 36 weeks and doc is estimating this one to be 9 lbs already :/. I hate to be impatient but I dont want to be induced. I just didnt like the experience of being induced with my 2nd. I cannot find the raspberry leaf tea ANYWHERE, So i spotted cumin seeds at walmart and thought id give it a try.

You can try nipple stimulation and getting your feet done it worked for me lolz

How do you make the tea?

Okay so i ate half a pineapple last night and woke up this morning to the rest of my plug coming out. No contractions yet though so perhaps that did something? Lol

I tried nipple stimulation and it brought on VERY STRONG CONTRACTIONS. Unfortunately I stopped after 15 mins because it just feels WEIRD. my nips are very sensitive ugghhhh maybe ill give another try tonight with that.

@mommmmyof2, cumin tea? You just buy cumin seeds(walmart carries them) add 1 tbsp of cumin to 1 cup of boiling water and let it steep for 5 minutes. Strain the seeds out and pour into a cup. I guess you can add sugar or honey or cinnamon to dilute the bitter taste. I havent tried it yet but it will be my last attempt.

Ok thanks , maybe I should try the pineapple too lol were due the same time I'm getting so impatient :(

Yeah, I suppose it did something so its worth a try! :) I knowww, Im so uncomfortable and tired. 9 days seems so far away. Im walking the mall now, and once I get home, its back to the mission lol. Im especially overwhelmed due to the fact that my LO is already 9 lbs and counting :/ GET HER OUT! HAHA

HAHA right. Wow 9lbs , idk how much my son is. My daughter was 6lbs 12ounces
12584065 tn?1436324114
Ya my 1st was 6lbs 11 oz , 2nd was induced at 36 wks and 8 lbs already, so this lil girl is estimated to be 9 1/2-10 lbs by 40 wks. I pray i deliver vaginally, Im afraid to have a c section but she seems STUBBORN!
