So after visiting with my MW yesterday, I decided to try this. I had talked to her about what to do shoud I get past my due date (next Friday). She told me at my appointment next week we can try a membrane sweep. She also mentioned the nipple stimulation and said to rent a breast pump. Well after I left I remembered having been given gift cards for the Babies R Us and went there to look for breast pumps, as I had wanted to purchase one. I tried it last night around 6pm for about 15 minutes and then again at 7pm and the braxton hicks started coming on consistently every 10 minutes. There was actually some pain involved which they never do (on the pain scale a 1, but pain none the less!). Contractions kept going till around 4-5 am this morning. I was awake and asleep through it all. I'm hoping that this is going to help towards some progress happening in the coming days. I'm going to try the pump again this morning.
