I tried that with my first child. I don't suggest it. I didn't go into labor, but I crapped myself silly! Try pinching your nipples, or getting your man to do it. That releases hormones into your system that will trigger labor. I'm not saying it will work every time, but that's how I induced my labor with my last child.
