  • walk a lot. Have sex. Get some nipple stimulation - if you have a breast pump, use it. Hang in there, your baby will come soon!

  • Walking and sex. The nipple thing sometimes risks TOO hard contractions.

    And if you do ANYTHING beside sex or walking, you are no longer doing anything "Naturally".

    Baby will come when it wants to. It doesn't care about you. Baby has to be physically mature and it will release a hormone to start labor. Sometimes labor can and will last for days and weeks. It is natural. SO, relax and in time, baby will come.

  • The only thing left is hard physical labor. With my last one I shoveled snow and ice off of our drive way. It got the membranes to rupture but unfortunately for me it was still several days before my son decided he was going to come! lol

  • 2murphyboys........your water broke and they didn't induce? When my water broke with my daughter we went to the hospital and I was induced....just wondered if it was the same for you or if they did something different

  • there is a higher risk of infection, but, if you are monitored, you can go awhile. Just like labor can last days and you can have twins vaginally and you can deliver a breech. Doctors just don't like to let you do anything anymore.

  • I've heard walking, sitting on a big bouncy ball, or having sex can all help.
