40 weeks and 3 days how to naturally kickstart labor?

On Monday I was dilated to a 2 1/2 from a 1 1/2 the week before, and im 70%effaced. The doctor is pretty convinced I wont make it to my next appointment on Monday but so far no contracrions and signs of water breaking!! Im so uncomfortable and getting impatient, anyone naturally induce labor successfully on their own or have any suggestions. Im desperate!!

  • I have been told walking and sex are the best two options!
  • Ive been walking like crazy and doing squats and lundges and sex, spicy food, pineapple juice, im convinced nothing will work lol.

  • I did walking and took a really warm long bath the night before my water broke with my 1st. Not sure if it helped but when I'm ready for this to be done I'm going to try it again.

    Check out spinningbabies.com. Sometimes getting baby into that ideal ROA position can help labor to start because then baby’s head is pushing against the cervix in the right way to get things going. Good-luck!
