Hey guys!! I'm a ftm, but my baby came early.... so i'll just throw some things out there that i was doing... cant guarantee any of them were deal breakers though
Walking a ton.. in fact i would make up excuses to leave the house and run an errand walking
Red Rasberry Leaf Tea (Courtney is def right though....but im just throwin it out there)
Lots of water after a kinda high bp scare
Last time i had sex was two weeks before baby came
I love spicy food and craved it the whole pregnancy, so maybe that helped?? I ate pho the night before contractions started getting regular
Also, there are a ton of herbs out there that various cultures swear by to get uterine contractions going. I cannot attest to any's effectiveness personally. But i know the mainstream two are the black and blue cohoshes if anyone digs that.
Lastly, I would say that I took care of a few things that had been worrying me about our homebirth, and when i got some solutions, i felt like it was just another "green light" for the whole process. So maybe take care of any unfinished business that is holding you back from labor physically or mentally??
