    Hi Mandi,
    I know people who ate Pineapple and apparantly it worked!! Spicy foods are also supposed to help you along. Also being upright is probably better that laying down but that may be impossible at your stage?!! Sitting on and bouncing (gently of course!!) on one of those birthing balls is also meant to be good for bringing on labour.

    I'm only 7wks pregnant so have a lot to learn yet!!

    The things I've heard may just be old wives tales but then they may be worth trying.

    Sex - I know a couple of people who have said that sex has brought on contractions.
    Spicey Food - Not sure about this..
    Brisk Walk - If you can manage it, my sister-in-law says it helped bring on her labour
