How can this baby not be here already????? I thought 100% that I was going into labour a week ago. Had contractions every 5 mins....and then they stopped :( I am now 1 day overdue, and am ready for this baby to come out!!!!! I went to my dr on Thursday, and was 3cm and I had him strip my membranes.
I don't know how to get these contractions going again!!! Ideas????????????

Try sex... other than that I have no idea. Just wait until they start or possible induction later on when the time comes...



Sorry Momma! Labor dust!

You could try walking. A few days before I went into labor SO had me doing squats and taking a hot bath shortly after and I would get contractions everytime I was in the tub.

I guess sex is my only option. I feel like a whale and so I hate having sex. But I need this baby out!! lol
And I realllllyyyyyy don't want to induce labour. That is definitely my last resort :(

You could also try bouncing on a medicine ball.



Good luck Momma.

Wish I could give you some advice, I went to 42 weeks but had been in slow labour since about 38-39 weeks, contractions on and off, the amount of times I washed my hair, was doing star~jumps around the garden, tried sex, hottest madras I have ever had but nothing worked, I had to be induced and ended up with an emergency c-section so I will be watching too if I ever decide to put myself through it again! LOL
good luck, hope labour comes soon for you and when it does I hope it is quick! x

i heard sex (the semen helps soften the cervix but you having an orgasam helps start contractions), pineapple (would have to eat tons tho), bouncin on a medicine ball,walking, going over speed bumps in a car, also heard do 5 jumping jacks (wouldnt recomend it), and spicy chinese. :) good luck and hope your lo comes soon. :)
