  • Well having sex really does help! i think the semen breaks down cervix is what i was told. worked twice for me. Lavender in your bath also helps to relax /soften the cervix...so i've been told....hope it helps....boy i dont miss those days!....congratulations!!!!

  • When you get aroused then it releases oxytocin and that causes contractions. What sucks is the same thing happens when you breastfeed and your uterus starts cramping to shrink to its prebaby size. I suggest walking and sex. I did tons of that on my delivery day plus I went to Outback and had a lot of spicy food. Worked like a charm!

  • Then obviously baby just isn't quite ready to come out. Give it time. You don't have to worry unless your water breaks and baby doens't come out within 24 hours.
