How to strengthen contractions? user banned
22nd Oct '10

I'm miserable. I've been having contractions since about 7:00 pm lastnight. They got bad for a while (where I had to breathe through them) and then they just kind of fizzled back to being painful annoyances. What can I do to help this along?

Nothing, really. I had contractions like that a lot when I was pregnant =/ I walked, had sex, nothing

Try pumping.

And don't worry about wasting colostrum. You can't waste it. You will continue to make it until your hormone changes signal your body to make milk a few days after baby comes.
