Hi, Yesterday it was my due date, my doctor stripped my membranes on friday hoping that I will start labor with that, yesterday I had contractions all day long and some mucosy discharge with blood, but today they seem to be gone. HAs this happened to anyone and then you went into labor?? Why is my labor stalling?? Last week it happened the same thing. My dr. only gave me a week otherwise they'll induce me, I'm really hoping to have a natural birth. Please give me any advice on how to restart labor, I already tried s_x, spicy food, long walks...

well you lost your mucus plug! thats a good step. since you're overdue, i expect this means labor should be within a few days. a tip my friend gave me: wake up early, drink a little bit of castor oil with orange juice, get in a hot shower, go on a long walk, exercise and then have s_x. it worked for her!

thats a lot of activities to do right before you go in for hours of labour!! Better put some sleep in there somewhere!! :-)

I went to the dr. today and they stipped my membranes again, they gave baby a week to come out other wise I'm going to be induce, I'm already 80% effaced, but not dilating, only 1.5cm. I will continue walking...
