I'm 37 weeks! I've been to the hospital 5 times, just recently on Christmas Day, for contractions. I've been contracting off and in since then. I'm 1cm dilated and 80% effaced. Any advice to start my labor???

a long walk, sex. Not much really other than waiting. I had 36ish hours of contractions before my real labor hit and I could go to the hospital.

You're only 37 weeks you could still have up to 5 weeks to go. The contractions could just be Braxton Hicks.
You baby will come when it's ready and it's best wait until then because there can be complications with having a baby born too early.
I know it the worst time, my first was born at 41+3 and I was huge.

I've been walking and just started the sex tonight lol. I've tried some of the old wives tales like pineapple mango evening primrose oil. I have yet to try the castor oil. I'm just tired of being in pain:(
