  • My mom did this: Take 2 fine tooth combs, one in each hand and press them horizontally into your hands, teeth side down. It worked for me too, there is some sort of pressure point right where the teeth hit. Keep doing it and it may help you dialate. Good luck!

  • Please DO NOT rush God's work. What if your off on your conception date and the baby end's up in the ICU? I know it's painfull and your tired of it but trust me, in 5 years you will look back on this fondly. If you must speed it up. WALK, WALK, WALK, and WALK!
