LOL!! I was two weeks overdue with my first, and I tried EVERYTHING...we had as much sex as I could stand, I tried mowing the lawn on the riding mower on the most bumpy terrain I could find, I walked for miles and did squats in my living room and that boy still didn't move an inch!

When I was pregnant with my DD at 39 weeks I was barley 1cm and not effaced at all so the dr told me to drink lots of raspberry tea and have lots of sex. Lol. Neither worked. I was still the same at the next appt.
