  • I read you're not supposed to lift anything heavy during pregnancy. I carried some groceries the day I went into labor. I don't know if was coincidence or the lifting helped trigger it.

  • take a sleeping pill LOL. my dd was a week late. i started having contractions FINALLY, went to L&D, i wasn't in active labor yet, since i was dilated only to a 3, they gave me a sleeping pill, 2hrs later my water broke. they were surprised to see me so fast...but really, just wait until your baby is ready, and enjoy the sleep while you can :)

  • Just because it's your "guess date" doesn't mean baby has to be here now. You can safely go up to 3 more weeks. If baby isn't coming, baby's not ready. Have a little patience and wait. And in the meantime - walk, walk, walk, sex, sex, sex.

  • babies will come when they are ready. I know that is not what you want to hear but it is true. At this point though, there is no harm in trying, right?

    I've found that acupressure really works when done right, a hot bath, sex, nipple tweaking, walking, etc. Check out my doula website (look in the video and link library) for some really good video's on how to start contractions through acupressure. My website is listed on my profile. ;)

  • well a week before my girl was due i was looking for anything to get her out, i just knew that it was time but she didnt wanna come out-go figure. I tried sex,i tried foot rubs,but eventually i ran around walmart for two hours before i broke past 5 to kick things into gear..at which time my doc held me in the hospital
