    It sounds like you're already doing about everything that you can for natural induction. Some people swear by things like castor oil, but if stripping your membranes hasn't worked then that will likely only give you nasty cramps. Most often when these types of induction don't work it's because baby just plain isn't ready to come out yet. My own daughter was born three months ago at 40 weeks, 4 days, and also had stalled labor a couple of times...that last couple of weeks was extremely frustrating, but when it came down to it we just had to wait for her.
