  • Took an almost 4 hr walk. Not extreme, but after being on "reduced activity" for the whole 2nd half of my pregnancy, it was crazy to me. And it didn't work by the way lol.

  • i've never heard of stretching the cervix... but my husband did the perianal message. it's not crazy at all... if that's what your talking about. and it is not meant to induce labor.

    i've never tried to induce labor, why rush it?

  • I used a breast pump...didn't get any milk, but that wasn't my objective! I did it for about 2 days, off and on of course, and within a day or so I went into labor. Might have been coincidence, but I don't think so!

  • It wasn't me but I had a friend who rode her horse to try and make herself go into labor because she didn't want to have her scheduled C-section! It didn't work and she ended up having her daughter two weeks on her scheduled day. It was crazy! She was up and on the horse before anyone could stop her. She said it hurt her ass more than anything and didn't even start her contractions. She was so pissed-I thought she was lucky! She could have really hurt herself and her baby with that stunt!
