Sex to go into labor?

I'm about 39 weeks and VERY ready to be holding our new son. 4cm, 70%, cervix is well positioned and baby is station +1.

The idea of sex right now truly makes me want to cry, but since it seems so highly recommended I guess I can try it. We haven't had sex in probably 5 months, last time I did cry.

What position seems to work? Laying on the side?

How long after he's done do you let his "stuff" sit inside you?

Do you HAVE to orgasm? There's just no way that'll happen with how I feel....

Did it work for you? How long after did contractions start or did your water break?

My doctor told me the sex thing is a myth. A brisk walk will work better.

I had sex once, laying on my side, and orgasmed. Plus I drank a 2-liter of ginger ale and ate a shitload of pineapple the weekend before #3 was born.

Ahhh, we DID walk tonight too. Sooo much pressure on the underside of my belly since then, irregular cramping too.

Anything in particular about ginger ale? That's a new one to me!

Worked for me twice. Once not so much.
When I read your title I thought you were talking about work labor. "Reshingle my roof and I'll give ya some."
Blond moment!

Sex didn't put me in labor, but it did prevent me from tearing. You should probably try walking around.

Sex does not bring in labor. Baby comes when baby is ready. I know everyone hates to hear it. But if sex did. We would nit be able to when pregnant. Remember baby is say I'm not ready.
