  • make sure you are getting plenty of fluids, if youdo not like water drink something else.
    stop stressing i know so much easier said than doen but stress can trigger labor..
    try breathing like lamaze.
    try not to focus on the pain it will be ok you have to tell yourself that IT WILL BE OK EVERYTHING WILL BE ALRIGHT.
    hope this helps:)
