Common Questions and Answers about Inducing contractions at home

contractions

I went 2 weeks ago at 3 cm. Then last week at 5. Then today at 6 but no contractions. That's why they let me go home. But since last week she wanted to induce me. I just wanted him to come when he was ready but im only 3 days from my due date im sure he'll be fine now.
Have anyone took castor oil an ate pineapples at 37 weeks and baby came? I don't want to rush my baby but it hurts to walk get up nd sit down. My pelvic makes a grinding noise when I try to turn while laying down. This pain is getting worse.
I started the pitocin at 930 am, I think they broke my water about 3 pm, pushed at 550 pm, son was born at 605.
My sister went for an hour walk in the soft sand at the beach went home and her water broke, you could give that a go, she tried this on her due date, I tired it with my son but had no luck, I had to be induced at 41 weeks, labour is painful anyway it happens, just keep upright buring labour, it helps keep things moving, good luck and just remember your baby will be here very soon either way!
WHEN THEY POP YOUR WATER AND START THE PITOCIN THOSE CONTRACTIONS HIT HARD. TRY TO HANG IN THERE AND GIVE YOUR BODY A CHANCE TO AT LEAST START LABOR ON ITS OWN. GO TO HERB STORE AND GET RED RASBERRY TEA LEAVES, THIS WILL STREGHTHEN YOUR UTERUS IN THE LITTLE TIME YOU HAVE AND SOMETIMES TRIGGERS LABOR. WANNA KNOW THE REAL WAY TO GET YOUR OWN BODY TO TRIGGER LABOR? NIPPLE STIMULATION, YOU DO IT LONG ENOUGH, YOUR BODY WILL PRODUCE NATUAL PITOCIN.
So I was kinda scared to go into natural labor at home. I thought about inducing with this one. But with my first my doctor asked me after they did an ultrasound earlier at the appointment to check babies position and I was dilated 3 cm at the same appointment. So she asked if I wanted to wait or if I wanted to be induced. So they scheduled me for that Monday. This was at my 38wk appointment. But I feel she wouldn't have given me that choice if baby wasn't ready.
I was contracting 3-4 minutes apart but it wasn't changing anything so they sent me home. Now, I'm absolutely miserable and I have strong contractions everyday, I have a hard time moving around,and I'm ready to have this baby. Does anybody know of things I can do at home to help bring on labor?
Anyone have any ideas how to help induce labor naturally at home? I have googled different things...ive tried basil/oregano tea, mac n cheese with a1 sauce, walking about 5 miles aday, doing squats n bouncing, having sex as much as I can stand. Any other ideas ladies?? Thanks so much!!
Have sex, hot bath, squats , pelvic tilts. I did all those on the night my labor started.
i was merely stating that MY doctor said that 34 weeks is a major developmental milestone and will not stop labor at that point. she never suggesting inducing at that point. i listed a few of the concerns of the baby, not all. i also said a week or so...if there are other problems, obviously it would be longer. i never said that the stay would not be scary. the main point that my doctor was making was that heart valves SHOULD be closed and bleeding in the brain SHOULD NOT occur.
So, even though it wasn't the real thing, maybe it was doing something. I just can't wait. My doctor is inducing at 39 weeks because I have gestational diabetes. So 3 1/2 weeks to go!
I'm curious if when inducing by home/natural methods it's more common to feel the water break or contractions first? We live 3 hits from the hospital so my for sure way of knowing if I'm in labor is my water breaking, I don't want to try at home methods if that's less common.
I am so over being pregnant I just want to know some ways people induce themselves at home. I want to know about some methods that worked for them.
As strange as it sounds... stimulate your nipples. You must do this for 15 or 20 minutes at a time to start contractions. This technique worked for me with my last pregnancy.
(Horrible) so I wente every night for a 2 hours walk 2 days after I started to walk at night he was here. April 7th and 8th I went to walk at night.
Any at home inducing methods or methods to help you face that worked for you mommies?? FTM..
Doctors cant predict everything thats why hes waiting until fulterm like she said 38 weeks to induce her. Its nomal for practice contractions to start and for baby to be head down at 36 weeks. Also all babies start practicing breathing at around 18 weeks. The only way to test if your babies lungs are mature enough to breath air is a amniocentesis where they insert a needle in your belly and check cells. Good luck please let your dr induce you...
The second night I woke up at 12 with awful contractions, found out I was dilated to a 4, within 40 minutes I was at a 10 and pushing my baby out. That's the only thing that worked for me, and I swear by it. Mix half cup 100% orange juice with half cup whole milk. And drink it for 3 days.

I'm 40 weeks and 4 days and still no labor contractions, seldom Braxton hicks and irritability out this world with my pregnancy. I normally weigh around 135 and I am currently 198 due to my pregnancy. I am having a baby girl and right now I am looking for anything and everything to help speed the process up a little bit. Any suggestions, advice or comments please help!!!
34 p.m., but don't worry....it might not take this long for you! LOL I strongly recommend an epidural---it worked wonders for me:) Gool luck sweety!
I was induced with my last baby at 37+5 days due to pre-eclampsia. But, baby and i are both healthy this time. My dr is inducing me at 39 weeks. I asked to be induced bc i live an hour away from the hospital, i have a 20 month old i have to send to a grandparents house, and my biggest reason is I run an in home daycare and need my parents to make sure they have someone lined up for their kids. I cant risk having a bunch of kids here and going into labor. Lol.
No hospital would allow you to take home a baby at 33 weeks. He would need to be hooked up to several machines to keep him alive most likely. If you are "too busy" then you shouldn't have gotten pregnant.
