  • walking, sex but only if your pregnancy is healthy and your OB didn't put you on any restrictions and you haven't had any issues.

  • Patience. Dialation means nothing. Mild contractions in the early stages in normal. The Uterus is prepping itself as it should. Think of it as stretching before a long run so that you don't get a nasty cramp. The uterus is a muscle and it needs to condition and prepare itself before hard work just like any other muscle in your body.
