Please help me get this baby moving! I was due on Friday and I'm really getting antsy!

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get things moving! I know the oldies but goodies.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I don't know if this will help. But with my daughter she was born 11 days past due (not induced). What I did the day before I went into labor is I sat quietly and talked to her and told her that I was ready to have her, whenever she was ready to come out, she was welcomed to do so. THEN I played my favorite music and sat on a speaker. I sat on the speaker so she would hear the pleasing music and go towards the music... (down the birth canal).

Sounds a little weird, maybe. But the next morning I woke up and labor started.

Wishing you all the best!!!!!

Sorry--I guess only MelissaCT and I would understand those terms. Getting your membranes stripped means the Dr. stretches your cervix apart, hopefully to get your uterine contractions going. But, they usually only do it when your about 2-3 cm. dilated and contracting mildly or occassionally.

Well, darn!

That usually works. Have you been contracting??

And if I recall, is this your 3rd child?

Oh, I also wanted to add a friend of mine used an accupunturist and it got the labor going "real fast".

No contraction and this is my second. I have had a lot of bloody show but no contractions.

Seagulls maybe I'll sit on a speaker tonight! I'll try anything!

Since you have bloody show and you are 4-5 cm dilated, it looks like to me you will eventually go in to labor. But, as soon as you do, you better get your arse to the hospital asap!! Because before you know it--you will be 8-9 cm ready for that urge to push!!

LOL! It never fails---whenever we send someone home at 5 cm, they always show up at the door 10 cm, +2 station, hardly making it to the bed to give birth.

I have nothing to offer by way of advice....just my sympathy. I know how it feels to WANT THAT BABY OUT *NOW*.

Please hang in there; just a while longer Musthave....you're almost there, and you're doing great.

Well I hope so. Last time I never had that urge to push and I had to push myself for almost 4 hours. The induction was horrible and I had toxemia to boot! My daughter was also sunnyside up and was a multiple presention. Her had was up against her face. I was just hoping this time to go in naturally and not have all the complications. I'm still hoping.

My Dr. basically said give me a reason to break your water and you'll go into labor. I just have not had any contraction so I don't really want to do that yet.

Hello Musthave,

I feel for you. I induced with all 3 of my children (all different scenarios) and yes, the waiting was junk.

Please hang in there, you know this will be over soon.

Cheering for you!!

I'm afraid I don't have any good advice on this one. My son was three weeks overdue and weighed almost eleven pounds. My daugher weighed nine pounds and was eight days late.

Musthave,

I hope for your sake that they don't have to induce. Maybe if we all started praying? I'll say one for you just in case. Inducement makes things so much harder. I wish I could offer more help!

I am 5 months with my first, so don't have any first hand experience...

BUT, my mother (who is a Certified Nurse Midwife) has had her patients do acupuncture and sometimes that gets things going right away...but make sure they are licenced and skilled with pregnant women.

Good Luck!

Give it a little more time, darlin! It will be over soon. Sounds like things are progressing on their own. Have you been walking? And there's always that *other* kind of exercise people swear by. Oldies, but goodies, but there's a reason for them...

Tomorrow could be the day; after all, it is the day I picked in the 'predict Musthave baby' thread. Good luck!

Poor thing!
My only advice is: go shopping! Keep as busy as your poor tired body can stand. It worked for me.

I just want to let everyone know that I'm not trying to complain about being pregnant - I'm actually not uncomfortable. The only thing that gets me is getting up 5-6 times a night to go to the bathroom. I know this will be my last so I'm really enjoying the pregnancy and it is 110% better than last time. I just don't want to end up being induced again I want to be able to labor at home as long as I can and go to the hospital for the good stuff.

We have tried the oldies but goodies so much that we have more than made up for the down time afterwards. I swear I feel like a rabbit

I'm keeping VERY busy and walking and working out everyday! I guess God has his plan for the Birthday and thats that!

I'm thinking of checking my local phone book for an acupuncturist.

Musthave, I am so sorry to hear you are going through this. I cannot say that I know how you feel as my son came early and oh so quickly. The only advice I can give is to walk.

However, please know that I will keep you in my prayers in the hopes that you go soon.
