Around this point of pregnancy, many women begin to get antsy about when "The Big Day" will occur. I am no exception. I find myself on the internet several times a day, Googling "early labor symptoms", convinced that my running to the bathroom every 1 hour has more to do with being in early labor than the fact that I am drinking crazy amounts of water. I have also Googled "home remedies for inducing labor" and found some interesting ideas!
You really don't have to Google home remedies though. Many women freely offer information on what worked for them. Some of these ideas are weird. Some are crazy. Some are plain dangerous. But some just make me laugh.
"Mexican food worked for me"...spoken by someone who was induced. Perhaps it was actually the induction that worked for her?
"Eat pineapple. It worked for me."...spoken by someone who later said, "Recreate the moment of conception. That's what worked for me." Hmmmmm...so was it the pineapple or not?
I decided to try my own home remedies for inducing labor. I have been keeping a friend posted on my attempts every day via Facebook, but I think these are fabulous ideas that should be shared with everyone. So here are the things I have been doing to bring on labor. One of these is going to get the credit for being "the way to do it", and I will share my idea with every pregnant woman I meet. :)
