Not sure about the % thing im afraid.

Triggers like.. rasberry tea, spicy foods.. are aparently just old wifes tales. Everyone says sex and walking around abit, are the only real starters.

Good Luck, Hope all goes well xx

Post subject: Hi
You could try maternity acupressure. I know it is something that you don't usually hear but it works. During my second pregnancy I was having false labor, alot of pain, and I was seriously overdue. I was dilated 2cm for three weeks. I got a downloadable book from I used the techniques and I went into labor, It also helped me to manage the pain. I hope this helps.
