  • Do this and i guaruntee u will be in the hospital by the morning! Give yourself an enema. Trust me this works! I did it, and 5 hours later my water broke. A friend of mine who is a RN in Labor and Delivery told me to do it. Plus you wont poop on the table while your pushing. :)
    Good Luck!

  • Walking is supposed to help speed it up. Other than that I'm really not sure. Check out, maybe they have some articles on there that will have some suggestions!!

  • Lots of things can give you more contractions but wont help you dialate so you will just be getting painful Braxton Hicks contractions with nothing to show for it.
    If you want to dialate then have sex. Sperm has a hormone called prolactin that will help dialate if you are having contractions. That is the only natural thing that will help you dialate.

    I wouldn't do an at home enema. It just sounds like too much cleaning for a pregnant lady.
