HELP PLEASE!
My first child was born at 36w3d boy
I'm currently 38w4d with a girl,
Thursday October 24th at 3pm I had a membrane sweep done, I had contractions Friday and lost my mucus plug/with blood Friday afternoon.
We are now Sunday and I've lost I guess more mucus Saturday and today...
Contractions Friday lasted 2.5 hrs 5-6 mins apart but then stopped late in the evening. Had a few Saturday and today (sunday) but nothing regular.
Oh and Thursday when I had the membrane sweep done I was 4-4.5 cm dilated 75% effaced :/
How can I get labor going and going strong ? Please help ladies!!!!

I second Julie's response- have sex! sperm on the cervix actually helps it dialate (from what my research has pulled up). we used sex to start labor with our daughter and plan to do the same with baby 2. my research on sex to start labor stressed that the woman needs to hit the big "O" to help it be effective. hope you have a baby soon! :)

Have sex! Get your husband to ejaculate inside of you, something in the sperm starts labor. Worked for me twice !
