  • Sex. Semen has the same type of properties they use in medication to induce pregnant women. I was told this by my nurse while I was on hospital bed rest as she was intently staring at my DH while telling us "NO SEX WHATSOEVER." lol
    But, walking helps too. And warm showers help relax the muscles as well.

  • Who is being lazy, your doctor?
    How does your doctor know that your pelvic area is too narrow?

    (If you are 37 weeks then your baby & body could be ready anytime in the next 5 weeks or so.)

  • and edd is just an estimate. ESTIMATED DUE DATE. :) as doulala says, it could be anywhere up to 5 weeks before the baby is ready to come out. view the fact that you are dilating and effacing already as some of the early work getting out of the way!

  • Uhm there is nothing to speed up since you are not in labor yet. You are only 38 weeks, i don't understand the rush, the baby will come when it and your body are ready.

  • im not in a rush i just want to know ways that can help me out so when i be in labor it can be easy for me to have the baby cuz my doc scared me when she said that my pelvic is 2 narrow that can make my labor be longer or if not i end up havin a c-section and im trying to avoid that
