Is there anything I can do to speed up the dialation process?

I am 37 weeks, 2 cm dialated, 80% effaced and the baby is engaged +1. All the pressure is starting to really hurt!! Any suggestions for how to speed things up?

  • i agree with PP. there really isn't anything that you can do but relax. the last few weeks of pregnancy can be tough. my son was born at 41 weeks and i remember! just relax as much as possible and good luck! it sounds like your body is doing great. :)
