  • one way to get contractions going is to have sex, but i dont know how you feel about having sex so far along, i know most women dont like to. if you dont want to go the rout of sex you can alway masterbate, everytime i do i always get a contraction afterwords but mine dont stay but im not as far along as you either. also there are some home remedies that you can use to help move labor along but they are not certified by doctors or anything. if you go to google, you can look up more ways to help move things along, i did that my last preg. because i was past my due date and nothing was happining, there are also pressuer points on you body that if you push on them they can bring on contractions you can look it up
