Have had a few twinges over last few days (more like strong period pains) but thats it. What has worked for you????
Hi There, The walking you are doing is excellent. You could also try some nipple stimulation. This will induce contractions. Also, lots of sex. You could try elevating your butt up a little afterwords so as to keep the semen in your vagina and intact with your cervix longer as semen has properties within it that will help to ripen your cervix. I am sure you have heard of other woman on here that have had Prostiglandin placed by there doctors to ripen their cervix to help to prepare them for induction, the Prostiglandin has some of the same properties as semen.
Also, do a search on line as there are some naturals teas you can buy at your local grocery store that you can buy and drink that will also help with the induction of labor. They really do work as my SIL tried the tea and she went into labor the next day.
Good luck to you!
