40 weeks and no baby
I am 40 weeks and my due date is september 26 2013 and my op planed an induction for me on october 3 2013. I am very nervous about it all because I had my oldest son who is only 14 months natural at 38 weeks. Any advise on bringing labor on before my induction. I am 1 cm dilated and my cervix are 50% thined out. Any advise on bringing on labor.

Walk, have sex if you can, take allot of warm baths, relax. The only natural ways I know of I did these things an my baby came 2 weeks before due date an she's fine...or you could use castor oil... 4 tablespoons in a glass of oj... If you really want him out..

Hi! I tried all this stuff ( sex, walk etc ) when I was 37 weeks as I knew I was in full term but rather than getting contractions my water broke and it was leaking for 4 days which I informed to midwife at first day of water broke but she did not take it serious and finally at 37+3 I was admitted they induced me for 24 hours which I can't forget whole life that pain was killing n finally I had to have c sec because cervix couldn't open n my placenta started bleeding, so whatever exercise u try including sex just be careful :-))) good luck
