  • Sweep out your garage. Thats what did it for me. Something about the rocking motion and the physical exertion is what I am convinced helped me go into labor.

    Also, being 1 cm dilated (or 3 or 4 cm dilated) doesn't mean anything- sorry. I was at 4cm with my son for a couple weeks before I went into labor. Good luck!

  • Lots of walking, and sex. The dr told me to be on top for more penetration. It worked for me. Dh and i made love around 10 pm and I woke up @ 2am with contractions, thought they were bh so I got up walked around house and by 4am they were full on and i was ready to go to the hospital. I had my LO @ 4:30am. If sex doesn't work try castor oil, it worked for my mom and my best friend. I have heard that its really gross so maybe put in pudding or a drink. I heard it also causes an upset stomach and diarrhea so good luck :)

  • DO NOT DO CASTOR OIL! it can make your LO pass his/her first stool in your stomach and that can cause serious problems with him/her. walk, sex, just get up and move around! spicy foods don't work and BTW eggplant is not guaranteed to work! Evening primrose oil just helps to thin out your cervix and its 2 capsules cut open and let them soak on your cervix... I work at an OB so I would know.
