What can you do to start labor if you're 39 weeks and 4cm dilated and 90 percent effaced and you've had a few contractions 5 minutes apart but they stopped and castor oil and sex didn't work?
I would suggest walking and lots of it. If possible up and down a stairs it has worked for a few friends of mine. Hopefully it will work for you. Answer An old wives tale is to scrub the kitchen floor. I don't suggest you actually do it but crawling on all fours might help. You have probably had the baby by now but this answer might be useful for someone else.

If you are 35 weeks' pregnant and 1 cm dilated and about 40 percent effaced and having strong contractions would taking castor oil help move things along?
At 35 weeks why would you want to hurry things along? You will birth a preemie with complications if you deliver now. It is unsafe to induce or encourage labor before 39 weeks… unless you have specific medical complications that make continuing the pregnancy unsafe.
If you're 36 weeks pregnant and you took castor oil and now your contractions are 5 minutes apart when should you go to the doctor?
Answer . Call the hospital now! If they are constantly 5 minutes apart you need to get there ASAP! Even if it's false labor it's still hard false labor--and they will eithe…r want to go ahead and let you have the baby or they will try stopping your contrations. It's not a good idea to drink castor oil at 36 weeks because your due date could have been slightly off by a week or two, as not all babies develop the same in the womb. But since the deed is done, call now! Don't even read this! Get off of the computer and call! :). Answer . Now!!

Inducing before 39 weeks is dangerous for your baby, who would be born a preemie. Don't do it.

If you are 38 weeks with first pregnancy contractions 3 minutes apart lasting 70 seconds and dilated at a 2 with 80 effaced will labor come soon after having two cervatals?
Answer . \nIf your contractions are three min. apart then you probably already are in labor especially if you are already dilated and 80% effaced. If the contractions aren…'t regular then you aren't in labor but if it turns out that your not then you will most likely be going into labor really soon.
I am 75 percent effaced half a centimeter dilated and 39 weeks roughly how long until I go into labor?
same as you! . Hang in there. I am exactly where you are and ready for the baby to be here. These contractions are killing me. There is no way really to tell when you will …go into labor. It could be today...or a week or two. My doc told me that he expected me to deliver any day now. It is great that you are this effaced. I would say at least a week, but don't be surprised if sooner. Are you having contractions? That could say a lot too. Good luck!
When you are 37 weeks pregnant how soon can active labor start when you are 1 cm dilated and effaced 90 percent?
Theoretically, as long as you are past the point where the fetus is viable, active labor can begin any time in any pregnancy, no matter how much you are dilated or effaced. Th…is means you could go into active labor in four minutes, four days, four weeks, etc. There's really no way to tell.

You are 37 weeks dilated 2 centimeters and 60 percent effaced and you want to know about inducing labor with castor oil?
Why would you want to induce your labor? There is a very good reason that pregnancy lasts about 40 weeks -- your baby NEEDS every bit of that time to become healthy and strong…. I've been there and understand your impatience but give your baby its best chance and let nature take its course. You won't be sorry!!!
\nIt will start when it will start. Sometimes stripping membranes will speed up the process, but not in any predictable fashion.\n. \nWomen's bodies seem to be hard wired (g…enetically) for a given gestational period (how long she stays pregnant). A normal gestational period for the human species is 37.5 to 42 weeks, but most women tend to deliver about the same time with each pregnancy.
You are 36 weeks pregnant with contractions for 2 weeks that are 4 minutes apart but aren't intense enough not dilated Should you try castor oil?
No, castor oil is a laxative and could make things worse. You need to discuss this with your doctor.
You are 38 weeks 3-4cm dilated 75 percent effaced babys head is station 2 plus and just lost your mucus plug are you close to labor?
39 wks with baby at plus 3 station 90 percent thinned out and 4 centimeters no real contractions will labor start soon if not what should I try castor oil I tried with another birth nada happened?
Why would you try to speed up a birth that isn't even past the due date yet?. Let nature take it's course...you will go into labor when the baby and your body are ready. Tryi…ng to speed things up is unnecessary and, depending on what you try, can be dangerous.. And for God's sake, don't drink castor oil. Not only will it not speed up/induce labor, but you'll be on the toilet in horrible pain for hours. The baby doesn't need to have you depleting his/her nutrients.. I remember being that far along and wondering (even tho I wasn't overdue) if I was going to be pregnant forever. The fact is that you won't be.
You need to be in the hospital
Im 34 weeks pregnant and having contraction every 5 to 10 minutes apart but not dilated Will you go into labor soon?
Have you spoken to your doctor, obstetrician or midwife about this yet? If not, I really advice phoning them or going to the hospital because your contractions are pretty clos…e together. It is possible that these could still be Braxton Hicks contractions. But they could be the start of labour. It's important to get checked out.
