A Pregnant.Sg reader shares her amusing story of how she attempted to jumpstart labour, as she approached her due date, with 14 different methods in 14 days
As I started to get closer and closer to my due date with my second little one, I got extremely impatient. Everyone had told me that I would go into labour early (not sure how they knew), and I let them get my hopes up.
Combine that with all the discomforts that now plagued my life this late in the game, you can imagine that I was absolutely ready to be finished at 38 weeks. Considering there are so many home remedies to jumpstart labour, I decided to try one a day until my due date. Here is my experience of what worked and what definitely didn’t!
Day 1: Sex
Since I was still a little early, I wanted to start with something easy that wasn’t too outlandish. My significant other and I still enjoyed a somewhat regular sex life, so this wasn’t too out there. We tried some positions that we hadn’t tried in a while, though, just to mix it up. Needless to say, it didn't work, and it only resulted in cramping and a little spotting
