37 weeks pregnant and physically miserable! Anyone know of a good way to push labor?

I am already almost 2 cm dialated, 70% efaced and my cervix is already over 50% softened. I'm having contractions but they are never close enough together. I have a 4 yr old little boy already so i try to stay active but this pregnancy is just... ahh!! I'm ready to have my little girl. I had my son in fla and they induced me at 37 weeks @ 4cm dialated. I now live in sc and the doctors wont do induce me until 39 weeks. Please, is there any remedies (other than sex) that anyone knows of to push this labor since i am already dialated and etc?

  • I wished I did lol. I was a week overdue with my first and that's only because I was induced I can imagine how long she would of been in there. Good luck!

  • I would personally wait and let your child come when he/she is ready!
