Seriously. I am 38wks. I have an (almost) 3 year old & 18 month old.  I am totally miserable & it is so hard to chase after them right now... Everytime I pick them up or pick up toys I have very uncomfortable braxton hicks contractions.  Also, the pain & pressure (down there) is making it hard to even walk normally --so you can imagine what I look like trying to keep them out of trouble! lol.

Do you girls know of any good way to really go into labor?  I took a 2 1/2 mile walk last night & probably will again tonight -But any other ideas?

Lots of walking (hills are good) and lots of sex, semen can soften the cervix.

My doctor induced me at 39 weeks for the same reasons with my second child.

Sex, walking, evening primrose oil, eating pineapple, lots of stuff.

 You can try walking, sex, all the old wise tales, but unless the baby is ready to come nothing is going to work.  Good luck, hopefully it won't be much longer!

baby isnt going to come until he/she is ready... being uncomfortable is all part of being pregnant

-nipple stim every 2-4 hours for 20-40 minutes (use your pump): however I don't know how you will have time to do this with 2 other kiddos!

-strip your membranes (your dr or VERY, VERY vigorous sex)!

-parsley leaf or raspberry leaf tea

-walking or stair climbing (helps open your cervix)

-ankle, foot and/or pressure point massage and reflexology

-keep moving as exercise/blood flow sends more messages to the core muscles to keep moving and stetching so you will better rippen

-drink LOTS of water

-primrose oil (taken vaginally OR orally, NOT BOTH)!

 

GOOD LUCK!

I tried this and I was 4cm dialated at the time and it did NOT put me in labor at all!! It only did what it was supposed to....It cleaned me out! LOL Bad crapping with this too!!
