how can I get this baby to come now?

I am a few weeks early but the docs don't think that he will make it all the way to term. BUT I have been having contractions every twenty to thirty minutes for three days now and would really like him to decide wether or not he wants to come out or stay in. Any ideas as to how to encourage him?

  • Walk walk walk walk WALK! And sex, if you feel like it. But get up and walk as much as possible, even if it sucks.

  • Doctor's arn't as smart as everyone thinks they are. Your body knows when it is time and just be patient; listen to your body and you will go into full labor when it's ready.

  • Just wait. It's best for babies to come when they are ready. Doctors aren't always right, you never know when the right time is.

  • There really is no real way to "make" the baby come. Sex and walking, that is about it. If you really want to encourage try self pleasure if sex is not possible. But the sperm has been known to soften the cervix. Good luck!

  • Sex! It will also make your cervix soft and strechy for when the babay does come out so it will beless likely you will get a tear.
