I have like 6 days (or something around that!) till I am due. I was wondering if anyone had ways that could "rush the process" kind of "make her come on!?" I know this sounds silly, but I am so tired of having to get Non-Stress test done! Everytime I get sick and the past two times they have sent me to the Labor and Delivery Room to get lab work done. I dislike it so much because the first time they lady bruised my arm REALLY bad when she took blood and the last time the lady did well... but I am scared of needles and can't take too many more needle stabbings for a while! :wink: I've heard walking will make the baby "come faster". I don't know if that's true, but today I've had A BURST!!! of energy... I felt like I could go run miles!! So, my mom and I went and walked a mile at the park... that's all I could do without feeling like I had to go pee! :lol: Does anyone know anything else? IF SO PLEASE share your ideas with me!! Oh yeah, and they say that sex will make it go faster... BUT... last time my husband and I did it caused a lot of bleeding because it irritated my cervix and my doctor said I may want to refrain from that.

* I am only 2 cm dilated(I didn't even know I was dilating!!), but the doctor was VERY surprised because her head was already SOOO Low! *

Thank you!! Sorry, this is so lengthy... I am so EAGER and ANXIOUS to see her!

Hey girl!

I can't help you out much there. But it sounds like you don't have very long now! Good luck!

Hi There! :D

YEY... If you are 2cm dilated already I don't think you need to worry about getting labour going... you are already standing on the doorstep!!! :lol:

Just remember to save some energy for labour itself, as this is were the hard work begins, and you need to be well rested. :lol:

I am so excited for you - keep us posted!

Love Lopke
