  • You don't. You let it come naturally. You deal with the uncomfortableness and wait until that baby is ready to come. Then you be grateful that you had a baby that wasn't born prematurely (your due date could be off by two weeks either way) or had health problems.

  • semen helps but only if your cervix is ripe. so thats where the sex comes in obviously. there isnt too much you can do until she is ready to make an appearance. now the walking can trigger pains because you dehydrate, which isnt good so be careful. hang in there mama, you will be up at 3am before ya know it lol. gl.

  • really nothing will help induce labor unless your body is already ready for it. If your body is ready, sex may speed up the process, acupressure, nipple stimulation, having your midwife or doc strip your membranes.

  • Walking and sex are the safest. Keep in mind tho NOTHING will work unless your body and baby are ready. You do need to take it easy you could do more harm than good. You don't want to over do yourself or stress yourself out.
    Everyone is misrible at the end, but you are at the end so don't worry so much :)
    At least you are at the end I am misrible and in pain and always sick and tired and I am only 14 weks.

  • I had a difficult pregnancy this last time, My doctors told me no sex and no orgasms. They said the orgasm could trigger contractions, so you might try the opposite and enjoy yourself! Although I think the real answer to your question is TIME. Things will happen when its right for you. Although, with my first pregnancy I was over my due date and had dialted 1 cm each week for a month, so when I was 4cm and 75% and still nothing, I jumped on my bed to try to break my water!! It didn't work. He came 3 days later!

    Absolutely NOT. Worst advice ever! And you don't! You just suck it up like any other pregnant woman!
