  • Don't do it. You will risk infection for nothing. Babies come when they should come. Go lie down and watch a movie or go do something fun to take your mind off doing crazy stuff to try to get the baby to come.

  • Laxatives OF ANY SORT do not jump start labor! They are dangerous and you could do yourself and your baby harm by trying to rush things. 2cm is nothing, they wouldn't even admit you to the hospital until you are at LEAST 3. Your baby obviously isn't ready to come yet.

    that said, it won't be long now. Try to distract yourself and keep busy and the time will go by quicker then you think. Good luck.

  • I was exactly where you are in effacement when I was preg. and over it so I tried everything from walking to castor oil, clove oil and some type of tea I forgot what it was and let me tell you its a waste of time and taste disgusting!! It could also make your labor pains worse when you do start. It was about a week later naturally for me. Just give him or her a little more time and enjoy your last days preg.
