exactly what kind of nipple stimulation brings on contractions? adult content

I am 38 weeks and my doc told me that she thought I wasn't really progressing at a good pace and I should try to do some nipple stimulation to encourage contractions and start getting my cervix softening...but my husband and I have remained pretty active sexualy through out this whole pregnancy and he plays with my nipples quite a bit...so anyone know moe specificly what kind of stimulation brings on contractions? I mean is it more twisting and pinching or more sucking or what? sorry if its TMI just wondering if we are 'doing it wrong' :)

  • What do you mean "not really progressing" You aren't continuing to be pregnancy?
    If you are growing your baby then all is well.
    No need to worry about "progressing" anything other than having a healthy pregnant, mama!

  • You still have a couple of weeks. I wouldn't worry about it. Babies come with they are ready.
