Well to start...I am 40 weeks TODAY!! I had a doctor appointment yesturday and they asked me: are you feeling any contractions? YES ( about 15 mintues apart) are you having pressure? YES LOTS IN MY BACK!!  

So they layed me back and did that whole :this is more uncomftably for me then it is you (as they put there hand inside you lol) and told me: well your water has not broke and your only 1 and half centimeters dilated...if your water doesnt break by Thursday come in and we will go from there.....

NOW MY QUESTION!!!!!!!

What can I do to speed this whole thing up....I have tired walking, walking up and down stairs, rocking back and forth, sex, and even bumpy car rides......all thats happening is my back is hurting more!!!! 

I know being pregant is a wonderful thing but I just cant do it anymore....its time for her to enter this world....

PLEASE HELP

Castor oil. Never used it since I went into labor just before 39 weeks but a friend of mine swears by it. I think it works for some and not for others but she said she took it and then walked on the beach (we are in Florida) and had her son that day. Something to try

Nothing worked for me last time. and I did TONS of walking and plenty of sex. I was induced at 41weeks exactly. You can try a bumpy sled ride... I went on one earlier this winter and thought "wow, I'm glad I'm not farther along or this would send me into labor for sure!!" or just be patient--baby will come when s/he's ready.

Be patient.  Nothing you can do will really make much difference.  Baby comes when baby wants.  You're best off waiting until you go into labor naturally.
