  • Your dilation means nothing. Some women walk around dilated for weeks before labor, and other women don't dilate at all until well into labor itself. Both are normal.

    Nothing is going to work unless your body and baby are already teetering on the brink of going into labor. Walking, sex, spicy foods, and pineapple are harmless and you can try them. But the most they'll do is get your mind off of things and relax you. Relaxtion is good for labor.

    You might be done, but that doesn't mean your baby is done. You made it this far, what's a little longer? Relax. Don't exhaust yourself.

    agree with my first i was 4 cm at 28 wks and i had her at 38. walking might help and sex but if your abby is not ready then nothing will work

  • What can you do to get more comfortable and patient? (Baby is not done, obviously.) So getting help so that you can nurture your baby until the time is right is really important. :-)
