This is just the thing isn't it? All babies come at some point and whatever the woman was doing when it starts makes people think "oh that's what did it!" But really, it's probably not true- it was just time. And all the well meaning people who keep telling us to what we "should" be doing to get labor going drone on and on... talk a long walk! Have sex! Eat spicy food! Come on people! It's not going to do anything!!!!
So true!! Dsd came home when I was 40 weeks 2 days with advice from her gym teacher (who has yet to have a baby!) She told me I should walk a lot and eat spicy food. I was like, that's sweet but I think I'll just continue to lie here on the couch like a whale and eat tater tots.
