My tips for what worked for me...
Walk down a steep hill, and don't walk back up! I don't know how many times my husband picked me up in our car from the bottom of a hill. The downward motion gets the baby to move down onto the cervix. It really did work. But, if you walk back up, it'll have the opposite effect. You can also walk down some stairs and take an elevator up... then walk down again (if you're in the city and have a hard time finding a hill you can easily walk down).
Hands and knees, rocking back and forth.
Squatting on a birth ball. And rocking in a circular motion. Works great for contractions, and also helps get the baby down.
Walk, walk, walk.
It took so much focus for me, every day, to keep the baby on the cervix. He kept putting his hand by his face, which would shift him on the pelvis and take the pressure off the cervix.
Also, women have had their waters broken for weeks without labor starting. Same goes for mucous plug (DH calls it "music plug"
) It's totally normal.
I wish more women understood that there is a HUGE variation of "normal" when it comes to labor. They think that if it doesn't fit into a textbook, it's not normal... mostly because that's what the doctors believe too. It's nice to see someone who doesn't buy into that, and believes in her body.
But, we all need a little reassurance sometimes too.
