37 Weeks, Ways to Bring on Labour That Actually Work?


I'm now 37 weeks and wondering what I could do to bring on labour? I didn't really try anything with my DS as he was my first and didn't really look into what different things could bring my labour on.
But I'm starting to get fed up and would like to finally meet our lil girl.

Main reason I'm asking this is because for the last 2 weeks all i've had is aching in my pelvis and hips and getting really painful bh and what looks like to be my plug has been coming away increasing near enough every day

Sex is the only proven way to bring labour on.


However you could try pineapple, a VERY spicy curry, long walks.

This sounds identical to my pregnancy and we are due on the same day! I have found my birthing ball helps with the pain, but as for bringing on the labour I dont know but I am going to have a strong curry for tea! I dont think my hips and pelvic bones could take sex!

We tried sex (including nipple stimulation) last night. Nothing has happened so far. Also last night I ate a really spicy meal and did squats (do not own a birthing ball). I don't know what else to try, I think I am out for sex because my lady region is hurting from the pressure today. I am just going to wait it out, he will come when he is ready. Good luck, I hope something works for you.

the nipple stimulation only works if you do it to both nipples for 15 minutes then have a break and do it again, some use breast pumps for it, try getting some clary sage oil and using that as a massage.

pressure is a good sign
