Triggering Labor?

What can I do to safely trigger labor? I am 37 weeks and 2 days. I have been having contractions, but they aren't close enough or strong enough. How can I make them stronger and closer together? How can I safely break my waterbag?

  • You can have it broken by your OB.

  • At only 37 weeks i would wait. Your body will know when you are ready. I know that's not what you want to hear but i never tried to start my own labor until at least 39 weeks. If your body is ready then the contractions won't stop. Just enjoy the last few weeks you have left and get lots of rest because you'll be missing it once the baby gets here. Good lcuk!
