2 Bumps

So I've been having horrible false labor for a week and am sitting at five centimeters dilated. What else can I do?

We go walking, but I'm tired of walking. haha Sex would be good if my husband didn't work whenever my youngest is sleeping at night. I eat pineapple like crazy.

We've been to the hospital twice and sent home both times. What has giving you luck in trying to help labor along?

  • do all the usual things that people try to bring on labor..
    sex. nipple stimulation. enjoy the peace & quiet... relax...

    (semen helps bring on labor in some & so does nipple stimulation)
