  • nothing will make it happen quicker. It will only happen if the dr gives you drugs to make it happen (which your body can still say no to that) or your baby is ready.

  • You only have 2 weeks left. I advise lots of sex..It helps..Really.

  • Sex, walking, nipple stimulation, spicy foods, take a warm shower, (( oh and when you have sex, make sure SO goes off in you.... other wise its a little pointless.... at least for getting your baby out sooner)) BUT none of this will work unless your body is ready. And you shouldnt try to get your labor started until you are 40 weeks... i know what it is like to be so ready to have your baby in your arms... but some times they get your due dates wrong... its only 2 more weeks...

  • Why are you wanting to go into labor early anyways? Yes the end of pregnancy sucks but tough it out. Its best for the baby. Really, dont be selfish.

  • Unfortunately, there isn't a ton you can do, but the walking and the sex are the two big ones. Just don't use castor oil. It can increase the risk of meconium, among other complications.
    I don't think Elijahsmommy58 remembers what it's like to be full term! LOL =)
    Here's sending you some labor dust mommy. Try to be patient, I promise you won't be pregnant forever. =)
