I have decided that because the doctor told me I can have the baby safely now and because I am beyond miserable I am going to try the breast pump. I have been told it helps induce labor but I guess I will find out.

Nipple stimulation can cause contractions or cramping that can lead to labor. But like all things that can help, it may not work unless your baby and body are actually ready.

I was told if I pump for 20 to 25 minutes then wait 10 minutes it should start labor. I just finished pumping so I guess we will see.

So far I have had some slight cramping in my pelvis but nothing else and it sucks because you can tell he is ready by how low he is sitting.

If your body is ready, like anything else you may try, it could work. Just make sure you do not pump during a contraction. I was told to pump for 15 minutes every hour and alternate breasts. I have not tried it yet because I have also heard that it can make the contractions worse than normal. Let me know how it goes for you! Lol! I'm a wimp!

It didn't work. But I have a doctors appointment today so maybe my doctor will be nice enough to tell me what else I can do.

It will only work if your body is ready, you could try again if you are overdue, when it worked for me i was already 11 days over due

I've been doing nipple stimulation off and on for over a week now. At 38wks I was "maybe 1cm" and I just had my 39wk check and was 3-4cm. My only babysitter leaves on Thursday and I have a feeling that's when I'll go into labor. I'm trying the nipple stim again but so far, no luck with it putting me into labor.

Sorry it didn't work for you. I hope your doctor has some other suggestions. Have you tried sex?
