I just came from the Dr. and am 40 weeks today. I have to go back on Mon. I was only dialated about a cm and I asked her if there was anything I could do and she suggested s_x. I am willing to try anything but I gotta tell you s_x at this point isn't going to be much fun!

I've been told that s____n actually has something in it that causes you to soften and dialate.

I'm 37 weeks on Monday and i agree s_x isn't fun at all anymore..the first trimester was great..the second was ok..and the third just right down sucks..LOL..but i've also heard that s_x does work...good luck

I've been making my husband have tons of s_x, at least once a day, since 37 weeks and still nothing. I'm 39 weeks 1 day today, and nothing has seemed to work for me. I've tried pineapple, nipple stimulation, s_x s_x s_x, pumping, walking, spicy food, and so on and none of it has worked! I know that seman contains something similar to pitocin, but apparently not enough! Good luck!

Thanks ladies I guess we will try tonight and tomorrow I will go for a long walk. I bought some pineapple and have been taking red rasberry herbs. Hope something works!

It worked with my last pregnancy. We had s_x on Saturday night 1 week before my due date. I work up Sunday morning and lost my mucus plug. My son was born that afternoon. Who knows? This time, I am 38 weeks and just found out the baby is breech and over 9 pounds. No s_x for me. I have to have a c-section next Friday.

It's not the s_x that does it, it is the orgasm- it causes your uterus to contract naturally which can help you dialate and speed up labor!

S_x is supposed to help it along because there are prostaglandins in the s____n that softens the cervix. Good luck to you!

My doc told me it was the contents in the sperm that would help ripen my cervix. We tried it last night I am really hoping something will happen. If not I guess I'm going to be in the same uncomfortable position tonight. Poor guy.

It both, the sperm and the orgasm. Just have as much s_x as you can bear.
