What is the best way to naturally induce labor??

I'm 38 weeks pregnant and completely miserable at this point. I've been having a lot of braxton hicks but they stop if i lie or sit down... is there anything i can do to bring on true contractions?

  • The best thing to do is wait. I am so sorry I know its hard but baby's come when they are ready and trying to force a baby to come early could have negative impacts on your child. (Trust me I was pregnant two weeks extra with my last and I was singing your tune.) But if I hadnt listened to my body, then I wouldnt have saved my daughter.

  • Be patient and let your baby come out when it is ready. Rushing it only leads to more problems. I know it sucks at this point but you or your baby having problems just isnt worth it.
