3cm dilated & 70%effaced help me start labor

Hi fellow may mommas, I am really hoping to get my labor going and am looking for some suggestions. I am dilated to 3cm & 70% effaced already but can't seam to get the contractions to kick in regularly to get this baby out. Any suggestions on what I can do to help my body? I have been sitting/bouncing on my ball, walking around house, going up & down the stairs. Thank u

I am with you!!! Super frustrated as my labors usually need a bit of a "jump start" at this point too! My contractions never stay regular until after my water breaks and it has never broken on its own!!!!

So i will be watching for your suggestions too

That worked for me once too and another time it was walking (force of gravity and all that)

Re: 3cm dilated & 70%effaced help me start labor

my doula said that sex is really the only thing that is proven to work. other than that, you are just going to exhaust yourself trying to force something to happen and that is not a good state to start labor in. I understand that gravity could help a bit but don't go crazy with it and use all your energy before labor really kicks in.

DH & I walked around the outdoor mall for an hour or so and went out to dinner when I was preg with LO. I was also 3cm dilated and 70% effaced. I lost my mucous plug at Border's bookstore. Haha! My water broke 3 hours later.

sex or nipple stimulation. Nipple stimulation ALWAYS give me contractions, it's just a matter of whether or not they stick around
