I'm pretty much 40 weeks and bored out of my mind so i have been googling away ( which i know is a no no) but o well and I ran across this recipe for labor inducing cookies...they sound sooo nasty...Just thought it was cool so I posted..
2 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 t. baking soda
3/4 t. cinnamon
1 t. ground ginger
1/2 t. ground cloves
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. cayenne pepper
8 T. butter
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. molasses
1/4 c. egg whites
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, baking soda and spices and set aside. Cream the butter and sugars together. Add the molasses to the creamed butter, then add the egg whites until combined. Addd the dry ingredients slowly. Once incorporated, roll dough into 1 inch balls and place onto baking tray. Bake 8-10 minutes. Once cool eat as many as you can possibly stomach, lay down for a nap and wait for labor to begin!

Gross and probably won't work lol. If it does, it's only because your body was going to go into labor anyways

I can only see them working because baby wants to exit before eating them lol. I'm five days overdue now, just trying to relax, stay out of the heat, and spend time with our toddler. I am so worried about having time with our first daughter.

black or blue kohosh could be your best friend right about now, ask you OB before taking any herbs though! It worked for me :)

Cohosh is an herb and it can cause pretty severe complications. I would not advise it. Midwives still use it sometimes but it can cause nausea, vomiting horrible cramping worse than labor pains... Just FYI
