Re: natural methods to induce

I'm a big fan of frequent dtd in the third tri
It won't bring on a baby that's not ready, but it's a fun way to get some prostaglandins to your cervix which will help to soften it. Besides, it will be a while before you get to do it again.
Plus, my hubby is really hot, so any excuse works....

Re: natural methods to induce

DD was born right on time! Felt first real contraction Wed @ 10pm - Active labor began Friday ~1am, DD born Fri 6am - transition to birth was 14 minutes. I tried the RRL tea and didn't care for the taste, so I opted for the capsules instead - started taking them at 33 weeks, 3 every day - helps with blood circulation and detox of the uterine muscles. We did walks everyday - curb walking sometimes - for at least 30 minutes. But I'd have to say DTD helped a lot to soften cervix and stretch the perineum tissues.

Re: natural methods to induce

the night my DS was born (10 days early) I ate an entire eggplant parmesan and DTD in a hot bath tub I think DTD helps! My friend never did it in her entire pregnancy and was 2 weeks late and had to be induced! Probably a coincidence I know but why not?

I have a girlfriend with an 18 mo old and she says they have not had sex since she was pregnant. That blows my mind.

yeah, my husband has a coworker who says he has not DTD with his wife since she got pregnant with their second child...who is 2 years old! Apparently part of the problem is that he wants a lot of kids, but she says heck no...so there are some issues there

Seriously, I think it's better when pregnant, if not only because I know that I can't actually get pregnant AGAIN at the same time, lol.
