Any Way to Speed Up going into labor?

I am 3 cm and The mucus plug is gone. These contractions hurt like Crap! Is there anyway to speed things up? I have heard alot of diffrent things but I was wondering if any of them were actually true? I am also open to any new suggestions. I was at the hospital tonight but they sent me home. I feel horriable!

  • Walking around a lot. It might soothe you to be in warm water relaxing though.

  • I agree. Walking speeds things up, but a warm bath can help you cope psychologically.

  • Nipple stimulation. Seriously. It brings contractions. Nursing!
