  • Will it hurt anything? I dont think so. Will it help anything progress? Do you look goofy doing jumping jacks while very pregnant? Probubly! lol :) Im sure there are better home induction methods out there. How far along are you?

  • Medically, IDK. But, it really doesn't sound like a good idea to me.

  • What my doctor alway told me is that you can do anything while you are pregnant that you did before you got pregnant. I don't think it would hurt anything.
