Sorry but there is nothing you can do to start your contractions, period. If you are planning to be an OB/Gyno then you really need to start reading about these things. I have been pregnant 8 times and no matter the pain nothing in this freaking world started premature labor.
No there are exceptions but they are health related. the following:
Women are at greatest risk for premature labor if:
They are pregnant with multiples
They have had a previous premature birth
They have certain uterine or cervical abnormalities
Medical risk factors include:
Recurring bladder and/or kidney infections
Urinary tract infections, vaginal infections, and sexually transmitted infectionsInfection with fever greater than 101 degrees F during pregnancy
Unexplained vaginal bleeding after 20 weeks of pregnancy
Chronic illness such as high blood pressure, kidney disease or diabetes
Multiple first trimester abortions or one or more second trimester abortions
Underweight or overweight before pregnancy
Clotting disorder (thrombophilia)
Being pregnant with a single fetus after in vitro fertilization (IVF)
Short time between pregnancies (less than 6-9 months between birth and beginning of the next pregnancy)

Oh come the f**k on. Do you think your the only person who has pains and aches during pregnancy.



You must have been under the impression that pregnancy is all fun and games. And that you shit rainbows...



This is called parenthood, put your babies needs first not yourself.

All 3 of mine were born 37 wks and perfectly healthy..My last 2 I did have to help tho because I was miserable. Someone before said sex...worked for me both times!! Contractions started almost directly after finishing so I just walked and walked until my thighs were hurting so bad...pain in ur thighs means labor is progressing my dr says. I just kept walking until they put me in a room and literally made me sit down. Plus walking while you labor helps baby drop and its not near as painful as laying in a bed on ur back laboring for hours. Good luck to u on gettin tht baby out. Now, bring on the criticism =)

Quoting kieeirra:" i ask on how to start contractions not people telling me to wait if i wanna get him out as soon as possible ... [snip!] ... and i dont think its selfish because i been hurting for 7 weeks so if your just going to tell me to wait dont reply to my post"


I know how you feel. Im 37 weeks and 6 days and so tired and hurting especially my back all the time. you have the right to feel how you want to. Im getting induced on Nov 14th just because i want to. I dont care what people have to say. Im not selfish i cant wait to meet my son and everything i do is for him now so i know and god knows and its all that matters. You will actually be surprised at how many mothers get induced ( i had tons of nursing clinicals on the maternity floor) i guess they just dont talk about it because of what people have to say on here but who cares. If there was something wrong with it then my doctor would not induce me. My mom is a nurse ( she cant just walk out of the er if i go into labor) and i want her to be there as well as my husband so its all planned out and scheduled.
ANYWAYS people are all different and last week at 36 weeks i was already dilated 1.5 cm and 70% thinned (effaced) and soft. The baby was at a -3. all i have done is had sex really cuz im so lazy. I honestly didnt think there would be any change BUT to answer your question they do say sex is good because an orgasm can make u have contractions and semen softens ur cervix. also walking and squating is what my doctor said. other than that there are things ive heard of but am not gonna say i believe in because i do agree when the time comes it comes. Those things can just assist in getting things started. but things i dont really believe is spicy foods, primrose oil, accupressure, pineapple...
Just answering ur question girly sorry for all the rude comments im sure ur super excited about ur baby or you wouldnt be on here!!!!!! :)
