  • Still 4 weeks to go and you want to rush God's work? And you DONT believe a trained medical doctor telling you it's a bladder infection? Walk, do housework, vacuuming, or wash the floors on your hands and knees. If you think it hurts now just WAIT till your REALLY in labor!

  • Ask your doctor if its safe for the baby now, to have your membranes stripped. I did and I started having more contractions and my cervix dilated 2 cm in 2 days. Sex and walking is best but I think 36 weeks is a little early yet.

  • sorry to say but the baby will come when it's ready however i kinda believe that having vigorous but not too vigorous sex made me go into labor, but that could just be an old wives tale.

  • Don't try. 36 weeks isn't even full term. The baby will come when it is ready

  • I don't think there's anything you can do, other than wait it out. He'll come when he's ready.

    When I got to around 39 weeks, the doctor stripped my membranes(without asking me, ouch!), and I had my son a week later.

    Walking could also help you out, and get baby into position. Gravity:)
