ok so this is the deal... I have 10 days till my due date.. I can basically start my contractions whenever i want with walking and nipple stimulation.. i have been taking EPR for a week now.. when I stimulate contractions they can go on for hours.. some with very strong and then just stop.. no bloody show.. some mucus but no blood.. I'm 1cm and 50%.. any ideas on what I can do to keep these contractions coming and change my cervix?.. i mean at points they are 5 min apart and go for hours.. then start slowing and stop.. HELP!!!

They aren't continuing because they aren't real contractions. There isn't anything you can do to make contractions suddenly turn into labor contractions, unfortunately.



Is EPR suppose to be EPO?

:wink: That won't start contractions, either. But I imagine you know that?

Plus Ur "due date" is an ESTIMATE of when the baby might come. Not when it needs to be out by.
