inducing labor.

For the moms who are trying to induce labor naturally. What are you doing?
Ive been having sex like crazy, walking and squating. Im dilated 1cm and thinning. I have been having irregular contractions since last Monday.
If you are doing squats, how many a day do you do?

Try foot massages. Google the pressure points on the foot and rub those..

Lol I don't think my bf would believe me if I told him foot massages can put you into labor. Lol even if I showed him proof he'd still deny it. :p

I was walking, having sex, but it didn't  work for me, the thinh that helped me was using the exercise ball, or birth ball, i had read about it helping your water break so I tried it out, few hours later my water broke! The only other thing besides that, that i did differently was use a heating pad on my breast, heard that worked hope this helps

And when using the ball don't go all crazy bouncing on it, just do very light bounces and alternate with doing circular or figure eight movements, I only did it for 15 mins but some ppl will do it for up to an hour, i just got tired lol but it worked !
