    The same thing that got your pregnant.  Or Castor oil, which is really gross.  However, it won't work if you aren't ready, but it will set things in motion if you are.

    There is no way to force yourself into labor early unless you suffer a trauma and that wouldn't be best for you or the baby.

    First off, why do you want to go into labor early?  Is is medically required?

    There are loads of ways to "encourage" labor, like taking long walks, bathing with clary sage oil, eating pineapple and spicy foods, or having a doctor or midwife do a sweep of your cervix.  None of these are guaranteed though. 

    Remember, the baby will make an appearance when it's good and ready!

    Your body knows when the baby is ready to be born.  Unfortunately, unless there is a medical reason for early labor, you will have to wait it out.  I know it is miserable but soon...
