How long do you have to stimulate your nipples to start contractions?

Is there a certain way to do it?

  • Let your baby come when it is ready. Its better for the both of you.

    I would only try other methods if you're overdue--around 42 weeks pregnant.

  • according to one of my prego books you have to do it about 8 hrs a day a few times a week. So I think you're better off just waiting.

  • I guess as long as foreplay takes. After foreplay and intercourse I started having contractions a few hours later. Don't stress about it. Just enjoy it. Believe me once the baby comes your gonna be to tired for any lovin...
