I'm 40 weeks pregnant today with my 2nd. I lost my mucus plug 3 days ago. As of Thursday, I was 1 1/2 cm dilated and 50% effaced. The doctor swept my membranes at that appointment too, and still nothing. I have tried to help her along but nothing seems to be working. I go for at least 3 walks a day. I have gone on a riding lawn mower for hours trying to help. (worked for my sister in law). I have tried pineapple, and Italian food. Also galloping alongside a curb. Sex and Orgasms. and nipple stimulation. I won't do the Castor oil. Anybody have any other suggestions to get the show on the road. I was induced with my son at 41 weeks and it was the longest labor ever it seemed like. I want to go into labor on my own this time. Any sugguestions would be appreciated.
