Ways to induce labor!


Okay I got permission from my Dr to try my best to get this gremlins out. She,said sex and castor oil if I dared (which I don't lol) well hubs and I haven't had,sex in months. He's terrified he's too to hurt the,baby or the baby will feel him. Any positions suggestions that would be easiest on hubs? After sex do I lay on my back like when trying to get pregnant?
Any other advice on pushing this along? I'm 39 weeks as of Thursday

There are essential oils that people take to induce labor - not sure exactly which ones but I'm sure you could find out. I used raspberry leaf tea (not the artificially flavored stuff but the kind that you heat on the stove) to put me into labor in my last pregnancy. I drank 2-3 glasses a day and it helped bring on contractions. As to positions during sex we can only do either doggie style or side lying because all other positions are just too uncomfortable with a big belly in the way.

Lol I'm due on the 11th and my mom is having a party on the 20th for him so he's better be here by then! Will a Dr do a membrane sweep if I ask?

There are things you can try, sex, walking, and squats. But they don't always work.

DH and I have sex at least every other day and nothing going on, so it isn't guaranteed. We also DTD almost every day or every other day from 35 weeks until delivery with DD, and still had to be induced for medical reasons.

Hubs works 10+ hour days so by time he gets home sex is last on his mind. Mine also since I am taking care of our 7 yr old and packing up stuff for our move next month. I just want to cry because I'm so uncomfortable and miserable.

I've heard going on long walks and eating lots of pineapple helps, but those are probably old wives tales. Both are worth a shot though!

Sadly baby will come when they are good and ready or when evicted (induced) I tried EVERYTHING with my two and I was still induced twice at 42 weeks

I cannot go near a pineapple after DD as I ate so much of it eugh

Good luck

Sex from behind (doggy style) with lots of pillows under me is all I'll do in late pregnancy. Not only does it keep OH off of my belly, but it gets the sperm closest to my cervix to help ripen. I get labor to start by having a fun, relaxing day. After I truly relax and feel all the stress and anxiety leave my body, I go right into labor. Provided baby is truly ready!

Hi I have a suggestion!!

When I was pregnant with #3 I was overdue and midwife told me to roll breast nipples, stimulate them to release oxytocin in your body.
You stimulate them until you feel a contraction, then stop until contraction stops, then go again and repeat until you have some good contractions
It might work and it might not but it started my labor only 10 minutes after I did this. 2 hours later i was 4 cm dilated

It's worth a try Good luck lady
