You can often get cramping after a pelvic exam. And 3cm is great 2 more and youll be in considered in labor. Walk walk walk squat squat squat
Lol walk walk walk squat squat squat u almost made me pee myself laughing t.y. tho
Haha thats funny i wasnt even trying to be funny it was a serious suggestion. Youre welcome. Staying active can really only help you right now. But dont push it. Oh and sex if you can.

I drank castor oil... worked both times

Castor oil ? And that helps with wat ???
I took castor oil woth my last one and it worked. I didnt suggest it because a lot of women wont take it. Its a very strong oil laxatkve that causes irritation to your bowels and can cause you to go into labor and start contractions. The reason some women wont take it is because it can be dangerous becaise if you take too much you can get sick and get diarrhea really bad and get dehydrated and end up in the hospital. But if you take it properly and safely then it has been an effective way to induce labor since ancient egypt times. If you decide to try it i can let you know how i took it.

castor oil is dangerous to your baby. Can make your baby have a bowel movement while still in utero and can cause complications at birth or even death

If your baby is going to poop its going to and castor oil doesnt cause it but it can cause dehydration if taken improperly. And can also make you sick if taken improperly. Its a method used since ancient times. But its your choice obviously. If it made baby poop then my son wouldve pooped and my sisters daughter would have and she took castor oil twice before she gave birth it didnt work for her though and she didnt have her daughter for another week.
