39 Weeks preggy. Only 1cm dilated and not fully effaced.

Hi mummies! Any suggestion on how to dilate or make the cervix effaced faster? Baby is at 3.1kg. I'm a first time mum here. My EDD is on the 23 Feb and i don't want to be induced/csect. Hoping for a natural labour.

Walk more, and have sex if you can. My Doctor says the sperm will emit chemicals that will lubricate the cervix become softer.

Dont worry. My baby came out just one day before my due date... Sometimes babies are testing our patience..

Indeed... As always playing with mums... Its good that baby is right on schedule... Ensures they get full 9th month growth inside... Will keep u and baby in prayers... Surely the baby is enjoying inside... And dont panic at all even if u dont have any signs that u will deliver... One day before u start feeling that its time... I was having a wholesome tasty meal with friends... And next day I am inhaling gas :😂

walk more. i went up and down the stairs few times and did few squats. no pressure do it slowly
