  • did you call your dr. Go to the hospital? If you are in labor they can help it along

  • still have upwards of 3 weeks before you should even start to worry....try to lay back until baby comes. Maybe find a flea market, mall or craft fair and walk all day.

  • I would just relax and let your baby make the calls. You are almost there.. Labor could start any second.. Just take the time to get everything 100 percent ready for your new little one.

  • Um, that baby is going to come when it wants lol unfortunately I know that after having two preemies naturally... If you want to slow it down, lay down and rest up... If you want to help it along, walk a lot...

  • That's fine and dandy. That means that you don't have to wait to dilate once labor begins. I was a 4/5 when my labor started.

  • walking helps a ton... nipple stimulation too. good luck

  • dialating before labor is a good thing. my doc said it means less of a chance of needing a c section or other intervention. it doesnt always mean a shorter labor though.

  • Walk walk walk and LOTS of sex!!!
