    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!!

      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 :))

        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

          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.

            have sex then take a hot bath as soon as u get out the tub get a foot massage while totally relax. This could help your water break.

              You will be in labor soon enough, so I say get some rest!! I went to the doc and was 4cm- later that night I went into labor. good luck when the time comes.

                  I walked around for several hours, contracting along the way. I took my husband along and he timed the contractions on an Iphone app.
