  • I had my baby 2 months ago. I will tell you that I ate spicy foods, basil, pineapple, walked every night (even though it was 100+ degrees) did nipple stimulation to and from work (hours drive at least each way) and evening primrose pills. The nipple stimulation got the contractions started, but they didn't do anything for me. I was long, thick and closed until 39 weeks when I was "maybe" 1 cm dilated. At 40 weeks, I was a good 1, maybe 1 1/2. They were talking about inducing me and the next night (my due date) I was laying in bed when my water broke and my baby was born the next day. Guess the moral of the story is I tried everything under the moon for 3 weeks and he came when he was good and ready to come.

  • I heard sex is the best one but if your body isn't ready it probably won't work. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy and birth :)
