We asked members of the Buzzfeed Community to tell us the craziest things they've done to induce their labor and the responses were simply hilarious:

(We don't recommend attempting any of these things to induce labor, but if you do, definitely consult with your physician first.)

1. "I blasted Lady Gaga and bounced on a giant yoga ball for hours while eating hot salsa, then had sex and made my partner hold me upside down so his man juices would move the process along..."


4. "Coffee potty. Google it."



Ok, so we Googled it. In addition to finding articles saying it might not be safe, we learned the process. Coffee potty is when you put a plastic bowl in your toilet and add one to two cups of coffee grounds and boiling water, then sit on the toilet for 20 minutes with a towel on your lap. The steam and caffeine from this loo brew supposedly causes contractions. Uhh...


13. "When I was 39 weeks pregnant and frustrated, I finally looked at my stomach one night and screamed, 'Get out!' Scared the crap out of my dog and my water broke the next morning."

14. "I ran up and down the stairs of our apartment building in subzero temps, ate cabbage salad with balsamic vinegar, swing danced, had lots of sex, and drove down a bumpy road, all in one day. I gave birth the next day!"
