This could be this time round or a previous pregnancy. I would like to know what you did/took to help things along. I know nothing puts you into labour, only a doctor/midwife can do that, but some people swear by certain things they done/took to help them into labour and I was just curious as to what. I am in last weeks of 4th pregnancy and have been 2cm dilated in internal os but still thickish and non dilated on outer os. I would love for things to move along, and would love to hear your stories, thanks
walking. I had a friend who walked 5 miles a day until she started contractions. Once she started them she kept walking (midwife in tow) until her contractions were close enough together to go to the birthing center.
For me I progress at a decent rate without help but my water won't break on its own. I have the dr. wait until I am 8cm and then have her break it for me. I'm holding my baby within 45 minutes to an hour.
I tried everrrrything! Ate loads of pineapple, spent hours bouncing on my yoga ball, rank RRL tea daily, I think the thing that helped the most was being told of my induction dates. It made me relax knowing there was an end in sight. I went into labor on my own and from the morning when I knew it was the day I walked...and walked and walked. Actually went for a hike! I think that really helped things progress.
