so i am soooooo not in the mood for sex i feel sore and tired and achy and all together like a beached whale! it hurts no matter how i lay down and my hips keep popping out. LOL im sure you peeps can understand! So i hear that sex can bring on labor. is this true? is it more from the postaglandins or whatev in the sperm or is it do to the p***s pushing on the cervix? i want to get things going but i want to do as little effort as possible. with how yuck im feeling i am acually dreading the thought of DTD but if its all true I can suck it up

Sex will not induce labor, but it will help if your body is ready.

When I was pregnant with my son I was ready for him to get the hell out! :lol: I did a combination of walking and sex and I went into labor the next afternoon haha.

sex brought on the contractions that jump started my labor but I think baby and your body need to be prepared or it wont work

agreed...baby has to be ready to come. with my last baby, i had sex the night before i went into labor. i was 39+ weeks though. this time we are doing it semi-daily just to see if it jump starts anything.. (38w) i've been having major BH/false labor for a while now....just ready to get this show on the road!!! my dr says the semen thins the cervix so every little bit helps ;) as far as being comfortable, the only way we can dtd anymore is spooning or from behind.
