    Do you think there is a problem? Why does it need help?
    It sounds like your body already is doing everything it needs to be doing.

  • I was doing all those same things to get labor started...My son still didn't come til 43 weeks. Good luck but in my experience, With the exception of inducing and C-section, which were not options for me, that baby is gonna come whens hes/shes ready.

  • I had a bulging bag with my DD but nothing happened with it. When I was induced, they just broke my water (no pit) but that was it. You cant MAKE your water break, no matter how low it is

  • I agree with naturalhome. I did EVERY THING possible short of medical methods (pretty much the things you listed and LOTS AND LOTS of walking)...And my DD came at 42w 2d (inducing and c/s were not options for me either)
