  • My doctor suggested Evening Primrose - its an herbal supplement. I think all it did was give me cramps. Sex does help too. You can ask the dr. to scrape your cervix for you but they won't all do that and probably won't at 36 weeks. Mine did it for me 1 week prior to date and I had the baby that night.

  • Hmmm, I was 1 cm at 35 weeks and stayed that way until 38 weeks :( I was induced so the day before my Dr. put a gel on my cervix that made me slowly dialate. I would try having lots of sex before 38 weeks lol :)
