I'm 38 weeks pregnant and need to go into labor
I'm 38 weeks pregnant and need to go into labor. I have scoliosis so the bigger he gets the more back pain I have. My doctor recommended that I do physical therapy, but with my busy schedule I just don't have the time right now. I'm dilated at 2 centimeters and effaced at 50%. I know you can't really rush things but I want to know if there is anything that I can do to help scoot it along faster. My back pain is getting worse and I start my days at 4 a.m and usually end around 10 p.m. So if there are any suggestions they would be very much appreciated.
And for the second I would like to tell you - dont be afraid, we know it's not easy, but you can go through it!!
Would you try aromatherapy? Like lavanda smell, sandal ... It can help you to go through pain with no harm to pregnancy.
I guess since you still have two weeks to go your doctor isn't open to striping your membranes, eh?
There is a homeopathy remedy my midwife gave me to get my labor going but I don't know enough about it to share anything more about it.
Keep us posted!
