Im 36 weeks pregnant but that is debatable. My Doctor is starting to suspect im farther along. So if I am, how can I help my cervix thin out?

Have lots of s_x. Not only does orgasms help contract a tiny bit but the s____n helps ripen your uterus.

I think the s_x helps too but, I think that walking and being active helps too because it really doesn't matter if you keep dilating and the baby DOESN'T want to come out.... I'm 4cm and 70% effaced at my 1st every week visit but my doctor said that doesn't necessarily mean he is coming any sooner she said I could stay that way until the end of the month.... so, there has to be another way to make the baby want to come than s_x! Plus, s_x isn't the most enjoyable things currently...LOL, maybe once I lose the 35lbs the baby added.

good question, cuz i would love to know the answer to , cuz i am one cent. dialtated and not effaced at all. and i want to have this kid!! s_x isn't an option cuz my hubby isn't around. and walking makes me crampy..any other ideas??

I'm in the same boat ladies. Yesterday I was 3cm and almost 80% effaced. The thought of s_x right now isn't exactly high on my list, as I'm so crampy and uncomfortable. I drink raspberry tea, but have no idea if that's actually working. Tastes good and it's cold out, so what the heck? Also, I march up and down the stairs and try to walk around as much as possible.
