Any one have any expedience with it? Did it work? I read a bunch online about it and I bought some today.  seriously hoping this helps. I'm 38 weeks and baby is wedged under my ribs, cervix is hard and I'm not dilating at all. Just hoping to get things to soften up and open up lol! I don't want to be induced!!!

Hope it helps but usually women start taking it a little before now. You can take it orally and vaginally. Good luck!

My prenatal yoga instructor tells us to poke a little hole in the one you take vaginally and it should help a ton.  Haven't gotten to the point to start taking it yet, but she swears by it.

Yes ik but I was hoping. ... but nothing is happening. I figure it can't hurt! I've already taken it orally. Waiting till later for the other way lol. I was reading online that woman were inserting 4 a night and started thinning out and labor started quickly. I sure hope so!

Didn't do squat for me. Started using it at 35 weeks orally and then orally and vaginally at 37 weeks. Was induced at 41 weeks and my cervix was still thick, long, hard and closed.

I took it vaginally starting at 37 weeks but I'm not sure if that helped at all. I had my son at 39 weeks. Honestly I think K that the pedicure I got the day before I went into labor is what did it. There are pressure points in the legs and feet that help you contract and j went I to labor early the next morning. So if your feeling desperate in the next 2 weeks it's a great excuse to get a pedicure:) I also tried castor oil...I don't recommend that it was terrible and did nothing:/

I used it with both kids so far. And bounced on a ball. With my first my water broke at 39 wks 2 days and she was out 7 hours later. I started a little late with her. With my second I had to be induced because I was on blood thinners and had to be off of them for 24 hours. I started orally around 34 weeks I THINK. I had my membranes stripped the daybefore but when I went in for my induction  nothing had happened. But from the time we got my labor started until he was out was 2 1/2 hours. I dilated really well with both of them
