This morning I had my doctors appointment. Typical end of pregnancy stuff, perfect blood pressure and baby heartbeat. Then it got to that uncomfortable moment when you get checked. Typical stuff really but I was really looking forward to finding out where I am so I know where I’m going. My biggest worry has been Mia’s size. I gave birth to a 10 pound baby once who was two weeks past her due date and I refuse to do it again. She’s perfect, still a tiny peanut with a few more weeks left to grow.
I am currently almost 1cm dilated and the cervix is opening. My doctor gave me a few pointers on how to make baby come naturally. In fact he said there are two things you can do, the rest are old wives tales. During my last pregnancy I tried it all and it seemed like the more I tried the later she came.
Things You Can Do To Naturally Induce Labor:
- more specifically you need the semen so don’t let your husband get lazy on you
I’m sure there are so many other things you can do including eating pineapple, spicy foods, castor oil (which I suggest you not do. I did it and regret ever trying)
What are some things that you did to naturally induce labor? Were your children late or early?
