  • It can change. It has no bearing on when you will give birth, because you can remain like that for a few weeks. And, anything short of walking or sex(which won't work unless baby is ready)...unless baby is ready to be born, nothing will make it go faster. Only time.

  • Walk around. Thats what I was told, I don't think it ever helped me though, I just kept telling myself, " He can't stay in there much longer " He's coming out real soon, NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!!!~CONGRATS ON THE UPCOMING BIRTH OF YOUR NEW BUNDLE OF HAPPINESS.'~Luck~
