I'm just a lurker here, but wanted to mention that a hot water bottle, held against the chest, can sometimes bring on labor. I guess the idea is that it simulates the effect of holding a newborn baby.
When I was getting near the due date with my DD, I happened to be reading an article about this method, while I was in bed with a hot water bottle at my feet. My curiosity got the better of me, and I lifted the bottle up to my chest, basically just to see what would happen. After less than a minute, I started feeling really weird... as in, some kind of major hormonal shift... so I quickly moved the bottle back down to my feet. Then I went to sleep... and woke up in labor a few hours later.
I was like, wow, I guess it worked! : I'm not gonna do that again unless I really mean it!
