HARTFORD — At month nine of pregnancy you can imagine it would feel impossible to do anything but wait for baby’s arrival. But one expecting Florida mom actually got up and danced in hopes of inducing labor.

Bonnie Northsea posted the video on Facebook and it has already received more than 1.4 million views. She has yet to post an update on whether the dance actually induced labor.

From her YouTube description:

Someone told me that thriller would induce labor. Here I am on my due date 40 weeks, February 11, 2015, looking like a fool. I’m so awesome! My Facebook video has 55,000 views after 24 hours, so I thought I would place on YouTube as well. My husband is fighting a battle with Testicular Cancer (just diagnosed a month ago) so it has been difficult emotionally recently. This video really helped as it has caused me to laugh over and over again. Now on day 4 morning since posting my Facebook video, I have 1.35 million views.
