@Cassandra i want to try pumping!!! I’m actually excited to use my breast pump lol. I had a different nurse at my apt this week and she said not to start until 39 weeks if I really wanted to. But honestly I’d rather get things going than not. That’s the only reason I haven’t tried pumping or nipple stimulation yet
I pumped today. (They say nipple stimulation). Also, ball bouncing and went and had acupuncture yesterday, which was amazing. Drinking raspberry tea when I remember. Babe has been so active, especially last night, but no action yet
Wishing everyone best of luck!! I feel like we’re all ready to get these babies earth side haha. My baby has been moving soooo much this evening. She wasn’t yet engaged at my apt yesterday. Feeling more pressure this evening though. Even feels like she’s pulling my bladder inside my uterus. I screamed for that one lol very shocking and not pleasant feeling! I’ve been having Braxton hicks on and off all week. Some days more so than others. I think I’ll try more things to induce naturally sooner than later. We’re all sooooo close ❤️
I’ve been pumping (nipple stimulation), curb walking, stretches, ball bouncing, eating/drinking the things (pineapple, mango, dates, raspberry tea). Nothing yet… starting trying things about a week ago, 38 weeks now and feel like he still hasn’t dropped at all and don’t even have BH. Just trying to get things moving hoping for something to happen in the next week 🤞🏼
What ever you do, DON’T use castor oil!! You’re more likely to crap yourself than induce labour 🤣🤣🤣 You could talk to your practitioner about taking evening primrose oil capsules to help soften the cervix, sex/orgasm is another way to get things going. Acupuncture/acupressure can help too
I curb walked today too. 😂 I’ve had Braxton hicks three times tonight though so 🤞 hopefully baby will make her appearance sooner rather than later..!
I've been trying since week 37.5 and have had no luck 🙃 39 weeks today and don't feel Braxton Hicks
I forgot about my birthing ball! Thank you for mentioning!!! It’s been tucked away in the nursery lol
