  • Self dilation. Stick you hand up there and just pull the kid out.....

  • Seriously, nothing. All I've ever heard anyone say worked was walking.....

  • Trust your body to do what it's supposed to. Don't rush the process.

  • Time! Unless the doctor gives you meds. You are just not ready to have the kid yet.

  • Walk a lot, but other than that, it is a waiting game, good luck

  • you're only 38weks, at this point you could go all the way up to 3 and then go back down to 1. It will happen when it happens, there's not really any way.

  • Good things come to those who wait. That includes healthy, fully baked buns from the oven.

  • If your body was ready to be fully dilated, you would be in labor. Just be more patient. Time is the only real cure.

  • Patience. A woman can be dilated for weeks before going into labor. I was dilated 3cm for 5 weeks and still needed pitocin to get him out.
