  • Walk, stairs, squats, bounce on a birthing ball, sex or clean like you've never cleaned before!

  • I had the same problem with DD. I was 1 cm for a few weeks. I had pain coming and going and dh had to come home on leave because I couldn't do anything on my own.

    I'm with other moms here.. WALK!! Oh and randibosin is onto something. The day before I went to the hospital for DD I cleaned like a fiend. LoL

  • Try to relax and get distracted.
    (Baby might come tonight or it could be a few days or weeks.)


    What is going on around you?
    How are you?
    Are you close to your EDD?
    Aware of fetal position, station?

  • How far along are you? Is baby head down and ready to roll?
    I was in a similar position 3 years ago with my youngest daughter. I was sent home twice and was in a lot of pain.

    Best thing to do is sleep as much as you can, or at least lounge around and rest. But take lots of hot baths, walk up and down stairs, sex, clean the house....those sorts of things...but make sure you are well rested!!
