stay@homezookeepa - 1074 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) Oh sweetie! I feel you! I was 4 with irregular with my last. Walk steps, have sex, walk more, have more sex, rub nipples, have an orgasm, walk some more steps...bounce and walk! A good sweep right now would most likley make you 5 and have a good bloody show where you'd have to have your baby.

lilyxox19 - 1074 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) Walking! Just keep walking for hours non-stop. At the hospital if you aren't dilating but having contractions, they make you walk for an hour or two and then check you again. Grab your walking shoes and plan a good mile or 2 walk. I know people who walked themselves into labor

vickiessecret - 1074 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I'm surprised they haven't sent you to the hospital. With my 2nd daughter, I went to the hospital because I saw alittle blood, at 39w 2d & when they checked me I was 4cm & the dr asked me if I wanted him to break my water.. I'm not sure what to say, because with my 1st we tried all the things to get labor to start & nothing worked. They say sperm helps to thin out the cervix, so if you can possibly having sex may help. Good Luck, Hopefully not much longer :))

faybebaby - 1074 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) have you had a stretch and sweep??? these are totally personal prefernce, they not everyones cup of tea. but they work wonder if things are already pregressing, especially considering how far dilated you are. i worked both time for me when my labour were niggling away and not really going anywhere, then had a s+s and bam full blown labour!!
