My midwife advised evening primrose oil. It comes in gel capsules like vitamin e. She advised me to swallow 2 at bedtime, to pee before inserting one near my cervix with a plastic applicator just before bed and to try not to get up for as long as possible after inserting the capsule. I'm not sure if this is what worked because the barometric pressure also dropped (it rained all day the next day) but all night I had contractions that kept waking me up, but I did manage to get a pretty good night's sleep. At 4:20 am my water broke and at 5:38 pm my daughter was born.

Ma__saging your ankles is said to be a good accupressure point to induce uterine contractions. So is nipple stimulation. Hope this helps.

Linda, don't listen to dummy, obviousely that person never takes birth control. You can get pregnant on the pill as well as off if you dont take it right. even if you skip 1 day, you can get pregnant, and most woman don't know this but, if you should decide ( i know it sounds nasty, but some woman do it ) to have s_xual intercourse during a menstration, you can get pregnant. Even fresh after coming off the pill from menstration, you can get pregnant. the pills that you take when you are on the menstration part of your'e pack, are only sugar pills, not actual birth control pills. the only reason why they tell you to take the seperated colored ones, is so that you keep your self on track, so fresh off of a menstration, you arent as protected as you think you are. ok so some might think that i am a smarty pants, but i am the one with the degree for being a pharmacy technition. just thought you could use some accurate advise. Good luck sweetie.

The day I first felt cramps, I decided to help labour along by going to the gym and walking on the treadmil for 30 minutes. I then went home started cleaning the house for a couple of hours, rested, and then went to the mall to do some more walking. Contractions came on strong in the mall, and dh and I went straight to the hospital from there. My baby was born 6 hours later, after 3 hours and 30 minutes of active labour.
