Acupressure and other natural ways to bring on labour

I'm really sorry if this has been asked loads of times before but I couldn't find it on website. Probably my tired baby brain! I am due to be induced next week and I'm really not keen so I'm looking at ways of bring on labour naturally. I spoke to my midwife yesterday and she suggested pineapple, sex, spicy food so last night I tried this. I ate a massive fresh pineapple, had a hot hot dinner and even tried the sex (sorry to be so open!)

I have also been on my birthing ball but not even getting braxton hicks!

I just wondered if anyone had tried Acupressure and knew what point of the foot etc it is you press (or whatever you do)

My first arrived at 38 weeks which I will be on fri and I really don't want to be induced if I can bring this one on.

Oh and i would not be asking about brining on labour early if it wasn't for the fact they have told me they want to induce me between 37-39 weeks (could only get a date next week at 38 weeks) because of sugar levels so please don't think I'm just being selfish and risking babys health.

Thank you in advance for any answers xx
