"tricks" to get labor started ??? missprincessk 1 child; Massachusetts 334 posts

I am 33 weeks due september 4th. Very ready to get this baby out... of course not to early, but early...if I can help it...
Some things I heard can help...

Sex, semen and orgasams (semen to thin the cervix, orgasams to contract the uterus)

Pineapple... I dunno why, but it has the chemical or somthing that your body produces when in labor... or something like that...

raspberry leaf tea ( doesn't "induce" but strengthens the uterus, and makes contractions more productive, when you do go into labor)

Castrol oil (spelling) contracts you intestines, which may make your uterus contract as well...

Are there any others that anyone knows about that, are things you can do yourself? without the doctor stripping the membranes or whatever...

in just a few more weeks I will be concidered full term, so it would be nice to know what I can do to "help" get things going... I maybe due September 4th but I really think this baby will be a week early, but 2 or 3 weeks is even better!!
