what helped you to dialate?

I hear walking, sex and I know the pressure points, but what ACTUALLY helped YOU??

  • I tried walking, and that didn't work. I also tried sex, and that didn't work. I think that babies come when they are good and ready, regardless of what we do. I know that is probably not what you wanted to hear (I'm 9 months pregnant, so I definitely sympathize).

  • Sex made me go into labor--my water broke at 4 the next morning. It did not make me dialate though. I was 2 cm when I went to my appt that week and I was 2 cm when I went into the hospital.

  • Labor. I've never dialated before labor started,

  • Sex (when I say sex that involves your man ejaculating inside and you having an orgasm), Walking, Jumping Jacks, Lunges, Squats, (as you can tell I REALLY wanted my kids out!) Stair Steppers (or just old fashioned walks up and down stairs), and good 'ole Tylenol PM! As for the walking we chose a nice long hilly trail!
