38 weeks

No signs of labor and not dilated at all! How can I get this process moving? I am so uncomfortable and have tried everything to speed the process up a little and nothing :/

If you can try swimming and sex. Not necessarily at the same time haha but my sister said swimming is what did it for her

I've legit tried everything..nothing works unless your baby and body is ready..I was only dilated to 1cm at 39 weeks and 5 days now I'm still 1cm and 50% effaced at 40 weeks and 6 days..nothing is working for me..I actually have to be induced because I'm not progressing

I wouldn't expect labor until at least your due date. Wait until then.

Your only 38 weeks, yes your uncomfortable but your baby obviously isn't ready.

Don't try castrol oil it can harm your baby walk walk and walk sex swimming evening primrose oil spicy food are some things to help you out but no promises baby will come when ready
