  • I was dilated 3 cm for a few weeks. And I walked and walked and walked and I had sex. None of it ever helped :( She didn't come until she was good and ready, which was 6 days after her due date. But the walking usually helps most people, thats even what doctors will tell you to do. GOOD LUCK! =] =] =]

  • Walking, sex and time. Your body and baby will let you know when it's ready for L&D.

  • OH. and my doctor also said that having sex and then elevating your pelvis usuing some pillows to allow his semen to go towards your cervix helps your cervix become more effaced because apparently the semen helps in that area. =]
