i need some help

okay this is my third child...but with the other 2 i was induced so i don't know realy what to expect during this whole labor thing. I'm alreayd 3 cm and 60% effaced well i've been to the hospital twice because of the contractions well the other night i had 20 in a hours time. than after that they just stopped. i wish that i could get them to stay. they say the baby is still pretty high up. how do i go about getting her to drop?

  • There's nothing that you can do except be induced. There are the old have sex, take a long walk, drink a certain type of tea...but honestly, your baby will come when she is ready to come. I know there's no comfort in my saying that though. Enjoy the last few days or weeks until she is born and get as much rest as you can.

  • I agree with the previous poster. My daughter was 10 days past her due date. Just wait, go for walks, relax. I tried every old wifes tale, castor oil, having sex, riding on a bumpy road, nothing even helped.

  • Make eggplant parmesan and eat it! Haha, I went into labor 4 hours after I ate it:) Might as well try it!

  • you can actually be dialated to 2 or 3 for weeks!
    i guess if you want labor to start you can get induced again
