  • drink lots of water! keep busy, tel her to get baby nursery ready, it will help distract with the pain, but get her heartrate up to help with contractions. its so funny because when that baby starts coming shes going to be like "never mind! never! pain go away!!" Good Luck, her bundle of joy is coming soon!!

  • SEX! SEX! and MORE SEX! The more active the better. There are prostaglandins in his sperm and it is prostaglandins that help make your cervix start dilating.

  • I agree with all the answers. I walked for 5 hours (with breaks) at an A's game (I was cramping too) and two days later (two days of constant cleaning lol) my water broke and I went into labor.

  • Nipple stimulation. It's supposed to stimulate the natural oxytocin let down. Same body chemical that helps contractions.

  • Nipple stimulation helped me go into labor 9 days early. My dr. told me to pump 20 minutes on each breast daily. It makes you have contractions! & contractions dilate! Also, I've heard to eat pineapple! LOL I ate 4 whole pineapples in 3 weeks & she came 9 days early..but who knows if that had anything to do with it! Also, WALK. Anddd SEX! Alot! :) tell her good luck

  • Hahahaha.... NOTHING REALLY WORKS!! Ok, I'm still bitter because I tried absolutely everything for an entire month before my due dates with both of my older boys and one was 5 days late and one was 6 days late. And I was dilated at least 1cm both times for 2-3 wks. I was such a raging hormone with my last baby they induced me 2 days before I was due. I begged them and they did it! I was shocked. I was already dilated 2cm, though.
