This is the walking that brings on labor, right?😆 It's 41 weeks this weekend & that's when they start talking about what to do if he doesn't show on his own by 42! I'd definitely rather not get into that soo this week is including lots of walks, date recipes, raspberry leaf tea & I'm sure some other fun ideas I haven't come across yet😅 Happy Tuesday friiiends!! #LetsAllHopeHeDoestGetMyDanceMoves
Hi Niki @sugarysixpack! I've hesitated posting this because I don't want to worry anybody, but I just feel like it's something I need to do. Please make sure you feel 10 kicks/jabs/shifts in an hour. Slow down, lay down, twice a day and just get those 10 movements. Not hiccups, movements! Babies do not slow down at the end like some say, their movements may be less pronounced but still just as active. If you don't get 10, go to the hospital ASAP. I was not informed of this, and I wish somebody had told me. God bless and prayers for that baby to get here safe and sound soon 💙
Show us your hospital bag please, what have you packed for you and baby?

Sex works bc orgasms produce Oxytocin! It causes the uterus to clamp down and contract. When the induce you, they use pitocin which is the synthetic form of it. Oxytocin is also produced during breastfeeding, which helps Mom bond with baby as well as helps heal your body postpartum.

Sex definitely helps but if you have to get induced, stay calm. It will be okay. You know your body. The number one priority is getting baby here safely. Keep up the walking, bouncing, squats and dancing!

I’ve tried everything under the sun and sadly nothing has ever worked for me! Haha! I’ve been induced with all 3 of my kids and they’ve all been healthy and no issues ❤️ you’re a champ! I had a “balloon” put into my cervix to help me dilate with this last baby which is a good med free alternative way to help induce labor if you get to that 42 week mark.
Sometimes when your Obgyn does an internal exam it will start labor. That happened for one of my deliveries. My first child I was doing some light painting and moved furniture around. I’m not sure this is safe tho. But labor started a few hours after moving my sofa. And for the third I was induced. It wasn’t great but he was born vaginally and he’s very healthy. I think this whole process of waiting for baby to arrive is teaching us how little we can control and it predict. You will do so well!!! We all can’t wait to see your baby

I used 2 Tampons dipped into clove oil -> in that Night it Started and Leo was Born! Do you use That „Trick“ as well?

Creepy fact why: male semen has hormones that cause the cervix to dilate. Good luck. Happy to see you moving and looking healthy!
I went baby shopping for 8 hours with my mom when I was 36weeks. Few hours later, my water broke. :) good luck on giving birth tho! It’s gonna be painful. But it’s well worth every pain. 😘

Have sex and if that doesn’t work, dancing helps too! Shake that baby loose

I was scheduled for an induction but she finally arrived 5am that day which was Father's day 6-16-13. Due date was June 1. But I was sure she'd be here by the 8th so once that date passed I was worried. But girlfriend decided to come flying out almost on the highway a 15 min delivery. This is my second mind you. My 1st I wanted an epidural I laid there for hours 8am till 8pm maybe an hour of pushing him out. Hang in there!! Can't wait to hear your story of how baby was born!! Hoping for a healthy baby & Mommy!! ☮
