  • You'll go into labor when your body AND the baby are ready.

  • Unfortunately nothing helped me with my first pregnancy and I was so ready. With my second pregnancy I would have contractions with in an hour from having sex. So the day I went into labor I when my dh came home from lunch I took him to the bedroom, worked and walked around all day and by 5 when he got off work I said we need to go to the hospital, baby was born the next day.

    With my first, i tried walking, sex, work outs, everything nothing worked, my water broke in bed after going to the bathroom. Baby must have finally ran out of room.

    Good Luck, just think - not much longer and you will get to hold that dear little baby!!!!
