An interesting way to induce labor!
« on: March 08, 2012, 06:23:09 pm »
A friend just told me when she was 4 days overdue a doctor told her to try walking in the gutter. With one foot on the curb and one on the road. The rocking motion of yours hips pushes the baby down and sets of labor.

She did it for a few hours over the day and went into full blown labor that night!

I no what ill be doing today :)

I wish I'd have known that when I was trying to have a new years baby..  I could imagine me 9 months pregnant on Dec 31 walking up and down my street in Pennsylvania lol.  That's great.
