Advice?? Help!

My friend is 1 week away from her due date, she went to the doctor yesterday and he told her that her cervix was really thin and he could feel the baby's head... Does this mean that she will soon be having the baby? If so, is there any way for her to speed up the process? Her husband leaves to go offshore Friday, and she wants him to be home....

  • sex and walking are two great ways to get it going but have her ask her obgyn if sex is okay. I believe a thin cervix does mean she is getting close.

  • Thin cervix is good! Thinning out takes the longest in a first labor :) Tell her to have a lot of sex! Semen has prostaglandins in it (the same stuff as Cytotec that they use to induce labor). Good luck!
