  • well you could still have a while to go but the signs are saying it could also be really soon. nausea can be a sign of early labor, and obviously your body has been getting ready if you are at 4. but hang in there because you could still have a week or longer. good luck!

    oh the only things that i think could speed thing up would be walk walk walk and sex.

  • You could try a lot of walking and a lot of sex...  and spicy foods,  etc.,  etc.,   but you're "at 4" and really it's your body (not your actions) that will decide what it wants to do and when.   
    You can't really force it.

    Being somewhat progressed means that your body works.   It knows what to do.   It is doing what it is supposed to do.  You can feel good and confident knowing that things are happening.

    Are you able to eat?  Stay hydrated??
