Alternative methods of producing a baby

In order to produce a baby from my loins, I've been:

Taking an herbal supplement called 5-W for the last 5 weeks (6 pills per day)
Taking evening primrose oil - also for the last 5 weeks (I've been increasing weekly and am up to 6 pills/day)
Drinking red raspberry leaf tea - I'm up to 3 cups per day of a prett strong strength

And now I'm off to eat a big plate of eggplant parmesan from Scalini's, which promises results within 48 hours.  Haha. 

So don't say I'm not trying, people! 

We'll see Charlotte tomorrow for another appointment, I'm interested to see what she has to say.  I'll probably have my first cervical check then and we'll discuss additional options of "natural" induction - but I'm still pretty on the fence about evicting a baby, however naturally.  There's a reason she's still in there, and I'm trying to temper my impatience/worry about our plan to be flying out of Atlanta in 12 days with my desire to let this baby take her time.

Hopefully she won't keep us waiting too much longer.

The natural induction we did (castor oil, and black and blue cohosh) worked within 24 hours. However the castor oil, if you haven't had it, is like delivering your internal organs before having the baby.

I'll cast my vote for sex, Mexican food and walking two miles in the same night. That's what got the job done for me. Oh, and my dr stripping my membranes when I started contracting. Good luck!
