well I went to the midwife today and at 37 weeks along I am 1 cm dialted and 70% effaced! and she could feel My Daughter's head "quite nicely". I am hoping things are progressing fast for me, but does anyone have any suggestions on how to maybe put me into labour? Because I am so ready to have this baby! thank you!

oh! and I forgot to mention I am measuring 39 cm and I havent gained any wieght in the last week, so I am thinking she is pretty much finished "baking" in there:)

I here walking a lot works and s_x. I'm 40 weeks and tried everything but s_x but thats only because he won't do anything with me I think hes scared and won't tell me the truth. Good Luck

Walk Walk Walk,. If you can stand s_x at this point go ahead. It is not the act of s_x that helps it is the orgasm. But yes walk as much as you can! Good luck

Also s_x helps becuase your partner's sperm help soften the cervix. Nipple stimulation is also supposed to help.

Walking is the best. An orgasm helps strengthen your uterus. It's not the orgasm that softens your cervix and helps you dialate, it is the s____n. Not to sound gross, but it actually helps more to swallow it that it does to actually have s_x.

Thank you ladies! My midwife said my cervix is nice and soft already so maybe s_x wouldnt help that much? I am going to go for a nice long walk today and hope for the best!

Rasberry Green leaf tea, and a pedicure! worked two times for me!

well walking only brought on about two contractions lol. Raspberry Tea is gross, I cant seem to gag it down as much as I wanted to. but thank you for the suggestion.

I did not say that the orgasm softs the cervix.

MJM, I know you didn't say that..but doesnt the Prostaglandins in s____n help sofen and dialate the cervix? Thats what I meant by maybe s_x wouldn't help much.
