Baby Joshua was due December 18th, 4 days ago, and i had my last final prenatal appointment today. My OB said i was finally 1 cm dilated and she could touch his head, she also did another membrane sweep, because the one last week didn't do any justice. Then we set up an induction date if i don't go naturally, next week. I want to do as much as possible to not get induced, i'd love to have a completely natural birth with no drugs what so ever.
are there any ways to quicken the pace of dilation and put me into labor quicker ? I know there's walking, but i was looking for more things i can do around the house ?
