I recommend going to the park and swinging (in a swing, of course, but be safe). I've heard it's a great way to induce labor, but I wouldn't know if it actually works or not!!

Vaknitter-- how are you doing? 3 days past your due date. We used a home birth midwife who had lots of tips for starting labor. The number one trick that I've heard works for a lot of people is actually to have some intimate time with your partner. And make sure you're not sipping wine, or other alcohol, because that slows things down and can even stop labor. The average actual birth date is 8 days past the due date (at least for first time moms, faster for second children).

He's here !
My son is finally here !! My water broke while doing errands on Friday morning so I drove up to the OB's office and he said, "I hope you didn't want an epidural. Head to the hosp and I'm right behind you". My son was born less than 2hrs after my water broke and no back labor so I am one happy momma.

Congratulations on your new little one! So glad to hear he didn't keep you in suspense too long and that your labor was over soon.
