Walking! Walk all the time. Best way to do it. At least that is what my doctor told me.

My doctor told me walking doesn't actually help that doctors just say it does because women always ask and they are promoting exercise and satisfying the woman with an answer! Sneaky bastards!!! Lol but shrimp induced my labor with #1.

Holy shiitake mushrooms, batman! 3 hours of PUSHING?? Wowza I labored 26 hours with #1 but only pushed for 45 minutes. #2 I labored 7 hours and only pushed 4 times!!!

I labored for 28 hours with my first and pushed 3x. I hope this one is better. Try spicy foods. Someone posted on here about some cookies that will do the trick. Eggplant is supposed to induce labor. I took a long bubble bath and that helped me. I also used the birthing ball

Lol..he had a big head so Idk if that's why, all I know is as soon as they cut me he was out like 15 mins later and once his head popped out the rest of him just slide out! My poor lady parts were sore for like 2 weeks! God I hope this girl has a smaller head!!!

Holy crap. I delivered #2 dilated at 6 cm and only pushed 4 times. She wasn't waiting for 10 cm and she came "barreling out" like mortar fire. She was like I'm done beyotch i want away from this vajayjay

Had my first after some spicy sausage/walking/sex but was not trying at all. With my 2nd I tried EVERYTHING walking for several weeks/sex multiple times a day/membrane strip/bumpy car/massage/spicy food/whole pineapples/exercise ball/what did I NOT try... she was head down doc could feel her just with regular exam. Had to be induced, still wouldn't budge until pitocin. 4 hours later she was out little stinker. Good luck :)

Lol I remember thinking with my second baby I was laying there all having contractions and they just checked and said I was dilated at 6, wouldn't let me get up and said itd be another two hours or so and I told my husband I think I have to sh*t. He said you can't you have to wait . I said I'm gonna sh*t right here. He said okay and I pushed and it wasn't a sh*t, it was a head I was like ooohhhh my god!! Lmao

I have not sh*t while in delivery knock on wood but it sure as hell felt like it was about to happen. I told my husband don't watch me deliver the afterbirth and I asked my birthing coach did I sh*t the bed?! She said no honey you didn't! Lol probably lied to me the lying b*tch lmao god love her

Bahahahahaha ! I was thinking about taking caster oil and I was discussing it with my husband, I came to the conclusion with my luck it would kick in while I'm already in labor and I would projectile sh!t all over, I told my husband I would understand if he wanted a divorce after an experience like that so I'm officially not gonna try caster oil
