Helping labor along

I'm 39 weeks, and 1 cm. dilated, since last Friday...I'm miserable, and just wish labor would start already. Is there anything that can actually help labor along, or am I really stuck with the whole, "it'll come out when it's ready?"

  • walking and sex. I walked ALOT with my DD the last few days and I lost my mucus plug and started contracting like crazy, but ended up being induced.

  • I think baby will come when he/she is ready, personally :o) I know that's probably not what you want to hear, but I've heard lots of stories including the walking and sex ones, and for the most part, I don't think it helps at all! Good luck though with getting baby out soon! I am scheduled for a c-section in 2 days and am 39 weeks today, so I know what it feels like to be "ready"!
