The last time I saw my obstetrician was last Wednesday, Nov 28 and I was completely closed up. When I saw her this morning for a regular check up she said I'm 2 cm dilated and 50% effaced. She also swept away my membranes too today. I haven't started to induce myself but am considering it now. I cramp all day (which started about 2 weeks ago) until 9pm when I start having contractions until I finally fall asleep which is usually close to midnight.
Any suggestions on what I can do to get the ball rolling?
Note: I try and walk but it is hard living in a rural community and the next mall is 40 minutes away and its very cold and unfortuantely very windy outside right now. The best I can do is walk around inside my house. I've been trying to having as much sex as I can but my hubby and I have a very hyper 2 year old who doesn't like naps ha ha.
I tried castor oil when I was overdue with my first and it was something I wish I never had taken, it was gross.
EDIT: I am asking for suggestions not opinions.
