Help me go into labor

So at my apt yesterday the Dr said I was at 2cm and about 25-50%. He said that as soon as my contractions got closer or my water broke we would be in business. I have been having contractions for about a week now that never get closer than 7 minutes apart. My Dr wants me at 5-1-1; and I have tried everything to speed them up. Any suggestions from other moms out there?

  • if you're past 38 weeks now, you can drink a half a glass of red wine, eat spicy foods (if your tummy can tolerate it), drink 100% pineapple juice if you don't want to do the wine. and of course, nature's best, sex with orgasm and walking. you can swing on a swing...bounce on a birthing ball, nipple stimulation.
