You are here
When my sister was pregnant we used to walk around the mall. Its good exercise and its supposed to help get the labor moving along! Hope this helps!!! Congratulations to you as well!!!
There is nothing that you can do to initiate labor short of having a medical induction, which isn't ideal. What most women don't realize is that it is your baby who initiates labor. The exact mechanism isn't completely known, but there is evidence that proteins in the baby's lungs act as a signal to the mother's body that the baby is ready (lungs are mature and ready to function in air). Inducing a baby prior to that point (even at so call "full term") can put your baby at risk for not having mature lungs. So be patient. Your baby will be born when they are ready.
