did you try inducing labor by walking a lot? did it work? did you try anything else to induce your labor that worked?

With my first, I was on my feet all day for work up until two weeks before she was born. She was 6 days overdue but came very quickly and had an easy birth, I think all of my exercise helped. I think walking does help a little because the baby's head presses against the cervix and helps it to dilate / efface, if I'm correct.

I have been trying the walking thing but it hurts, so I only end up going for 15 minutes and hoping a magical electric wheel comes and picks me up. I'm due Monday, and before my BHs were always happening, now it seems like a ghost town of no signs of possible labor.

I walked till my legs fell off and ended up being induced. I don't think I walked close enough to my due date lol

Ive heard things like spicy food, sex, and walking can induce labor. I havent tried but in the next couple weeks im goin to be overdosing on buffulo wings, wearin my treadmil out, n keepin my hubby very busy. :-p a friend of mine climbed stairs at the mall for a couple hours til she went into labor too.

I'm willing to bet it won't be too long :) I'm almost 37 weeks and sooo ready to be done, too.

I always walk through out my pregnancy, not just at the end.
