37 weeks-Naturally inducing your labor?


I have read that no matter what you do the baby will not come unless they are ready to. However, do you think that walking really makes a difference? Or such silly things as scrubbing floors, doing household chores, etc make a difference? Just want some opinions

Walking etc isnt going to make you go into labour unless you are ready but it is going to help baby put pressure on the cervix and get them in a good position

There's not really any natural way to induce labour, but there are things you can do to help it come quicker; I ate pineapple, walked about 20 minutes a day, and drank Raspberry leaf tea religiously since the start of 3rd tri in my first pregnancy, and Adrian was born at 37 weeks exactly. This pregnancy I've been more lax, and I'm due this friday. I completely contribute my later labour to my more sedentary and lax stance this time around. If i'd stuck to drinking my RLT every day, I probably would've had baby by now.

keeping as active a possible is a very good thing to do. it gets baby into a great position for birth so it makes pushing easier as baby will be in the right place and as low as possible.
ive been more active during this pregnancy then my first and baby is already engaging which doesnt feel great lol but a good thing

Last time round we tried it all, walks, raspberry leaf tea, pineapple , curry (which the wife hates)

All of the above failed so we tried a bit of "the other" - bang Jessica Arrived, this time around after having no particular appetite for this during pregnancy the wife has decided that as we hit 37 weeks we need to be doing it... I feel used (not really)

Keep smiling
