  • it could also be more than one week so just be prepared. if i were you i would just want to relax as much as possible to prepare for birth and then having a newborn. you can try sex and walking which can speed things along for some ladies. gl!

  • I'm 36w/4d. I was reading that nipple stimulation is "proven" to draw contractions. They do say to be careful because it can really make the contractions strong and fast, so beware. :)
