  • Squats is what worked for me, and keep moving. Once I started feeling contractions, I stayed active, did squats and cleaned my apartment. I didn't want to sit down and relax, because I wanted to keep things moving along.

  • I did the walking. I feel like it helped. Not really sure though. It might have just been time. Hang in there.

  • What helped me was a lot of walking and standing whenever possible. I went from 3 cm and contractions to baby in 45 minutes because I was standing so much. But I was in early labor for days, 3-4 probably.

    Don't rush it. Baby will be here soon enough.

  • Well the day i turned 37 weeks i tried a lot of things. First I went for a walk for about 30mins & ran a little & did a few jumping jacks. then i came home and had sex & then i stimulated my nipples, its wierd but it did indeed start giving me contractions not any that i thought were doing anything though. & what do you know i had my baby boy four days later. I actually had started leaking fluid the day after i started all of these things & i didnt know it was amniotic fluid. Im not quite sure if these things is what led me to start leaking fluid or not but it sure is a coincidance.
