  • when you have sex make sure your hubby or SO is ejaculating in you, the sperm is what softens everything
    nipple stimulation can also help as well as spicy foods

  • just dont go in to get induced. tell them you refuse. They cant make you. baby will come in her own time. Tell them if you aren't at 42 weeks then you see no need to get induced.

  • My dr. told us to have lots of sex even after the mucus plug came out. I don't think it can cause an infection unless he has an STD or something. Dr.s have recommended this for years!

  • I have been induced and there are good reasons for it. Its not that bad and i went on to have reg labor of 6 hours. I have had a child with nature and being induced its not as bad as they say you just need to talk to your doctor about all your concerns

  • sex, and sperm can only cause infection if your water has already broken...screw his brains out baby!! I was due on the 27th, nothing yet, being induced tomorrow!

  • You don't have to be induced anyway. Many babies don't come until 42 weeks, sometimes 43. Just keep doing what you're doing- walking, preparing for the baby, sex if fine as long as your water hasn't broken. etc. But if I were you, I'd just try to get as much rest as possible because very soon you will be exhausted!
