Alright ladies I need some help! I am currently dilated to 3cm, 100% efaced and in a regular contraction pattern every 6 minutes. This has been going on for a day and a half now! Spent the evening at L&D and was sent home to wait it out. I can't handle going up there one more time and being sent home with these contractions so I need to get this labor going. DR said if I get to 4 they will admit me and give me pitocin but until then I'm on my own. I need some ideas, any ideas at this point! I just had a friend tell me to eat watermelon...never heard that but hubby is picking it up from the store at lunch lol
I have heard castor oil and candy work... haven't ever tried it myself though. I tried everything else and nothing worked... I finally said screw it and let nature decide. Worked out better that way - less frustration.
i was 2 days past my due date and i went to get the mail and someone backed into my car that was parked and i guess the stress started mine uz the next morning at 10am i was on my way to the hospital and got admited so i hate to say it stress brought my labor on or just being pissed off someone backed into my parked car
My husband was deployed when I was pregnant with our daughter. I prayed and prayed she'd hold out til his R&R so he could be there. Which she did....by about 12 hours. :)He arrived at 11 am and we were in the hospital by 11 pm. We had gone to a movie that night and 2 hours after the movie was finished I was in labor. I've been told it's because of the position that I/baby was sitting during the movie. I don't know if it's true (or all the other stressful/exciting things going on)but it you never know--it might work for you! :)
ugh I've tried caster oil....physically couldn't drink it bc of the consistancy but had the brilliant idea to make hashbrowns with it. Two hours later my stomach was rumbling so loud I thought it would scare the baby out but I stalled at 3...
I used castor oil to induce labor with my daughter and it worked great. I drank it at night and was at the hospital the very next morning and delivered her. I didn't personally experience any cramping or diarrhea but that may be something that depends on that individual. Good luck and congrats!
SEX and WALKING are the main things that I have always been told. I have had to be induced with all three of my previous...and I am sure I will need it for this one as well!!! I was induced 2 weeks early with the last two!!! We will see...Good LUCK!
well ladies I had the baby!! Went in Tuesday night. You'll never guess what worked....Michael Jackson Experience for WII! LMAO not sure if it was the dancing, or attempt at dancig, or the hystarical laughing but my labor started at 6pm tuesday night. Got sent home around 11pm, went back at 1am, sat in the triage room until 4 being monitored, admitted at 0430, broke my water at 0615 and he was born at 0708 wednesday.
