  • Shooting pain through your vaginal area. Sounds so corny but have you googled this to get some extra insight? It sounds like braxton hicks which is a like a dress rehearsal for labor that is coming up. Ways to naturally induce labor? I tried washing my floors by hand, vacuum the carpet, lots of walking and I was induced at the same gestation you are. I do know it's best to wait after 38 weeks. My son was born at 37 weeks and was very sick, his lungs weren't ready.

    I've heard sex can help jump start labor too.

  • I'm 32 weeks and have been having the same pains. I have no idea what they are!
    But my Dr. said sex will bring on labor. and he also said your considered full term at 37weeks.
    Good Luck!!

  • Baby's probably whacking your cervix.

  • Naturally induce labor? WAIT for LABOR TO START ON ITS OWN. Miracle sex, Castor Oil, belly messages, walking, steamed water, masterbation and all that mumbo jumbo is a bunch of crap. I'm 40 weeks and I'm not about to take any oil, sex is already happening along with orgasms, walking too and guess what, I'm STILL pregnant. I'll be induced next Friday so I can definitely wait 7 days if he doesn't show up earlier. I need time to clean up and organize all his belongings. Oh and the pains will only get worse. :)
