What are some ways that will help me thin my cervix out im 38 1/2 weeks and if I have not went in to labor by next monday (39 1/2 weeks) my doctor is going to induce me! Anyone got any sugestions?
This question is obviously 3 years old, but just in case anyone needs advice on this ...
- No amount of showers or spicy foods can cause your cervix to thin out.
- Exercise and walking don't induce labour, but it does make giving birth easier.
- Sex has been known to cause labour, but it's not an efficient method.
Basically - your baby will come when it's time ... if the doctor feels the need to induce you, then he will, but in the meantime, just worry about staying healthy.
Soak in a hot bath and walk around. If you are being induced your doctor will probably admit you a day early then give you something to softrn you cervix. It's not uncommon.
my mom and me walked every afternoon, and took long baths, and as for me I had lots of sex and drank raspberry tea
the three hots hot showers, hot (spicey) food, and hot sex thats what my doc told me
