Any tips?

To help me progress?
I'm 3cm and 70% effaced as of 11am. I've been having contractions since Monday and they have been steady since yesterday...

Re: Any tips?

pineapple is supposed to help too. so have some sexytime and eat some pineapple

also, to get all new agey-hippie...worrying and being anxious can stall things. thinking affirmations like "my body is doing it's job perfectly.... my cervix will open like a blooming flower and i'll soon meet my baby" or simply relaxing, not overthinking anything and not letting worries worry you can help.

I spent most of my labor watching movies and ignoring the contractions. I didn't really notice it except for an occasional strong contraction until I got up and my water broke.

Yep worrying can cause you not to go into labor. Instead they say do things that you enjoy and make you happy that helps get the juices going

Re: Any tips?

I'd work on some optimal fetal positioning. Sometimes a baby in a funky position can't properly apply there head to the cervix and get things moving. So lots of hands and knees, stair climbing, leaning on a yoga ball, no reclining.
