39 weeks today. I took my dogs for a hike in the woods today and as I was walking home I got a VERY strong contraction that radiated from my back all the way around to my tummy, felt like the worst menstrual cramps on steroids. Nothing like the usual BH! I was excited that labor was just around the corner!! But of course the contraction never came back... If I continued to walk walk walk would it somehow speed up the time I go into labor? I'm getting SO impatient of waiting and I tried sex and nipple stimulation but nothing seems to help. Did walking work for you? What tricks worked for you?
