Any ideas how?=)

Hey ladies I am 5 cm dilated and my crevix is paper then as the DR put it.
I was wondering if any one had any advice and what worked for them to help move labor along?
Don't bother to answer if your answer is the baby will come when its raedy dont rush it if I wanted that answer (and by the way duh!!) then I'd ask when is my baby going to come? I did NOT so dont comment if thats you answer!

Thanks for any advice ladies!=)

  • believe it or not having sex, there is something in the ejaculate that helps with having the baby. my doctor sent me home with telling me to have sex. if you are 5 centimeters are you still walking? I was having a hard time walking and when they examined me I was 51/2 centimeters when I hit the hospital. I am curious normally at the 3 centimeter mark you are on ready with effacement, you are 5 with the effacement, and the doc sent you home? new one on me, but of coarse every pregnancy is different, just never heard of it before.
