36 weeks!!! WOOT!
so hubbie says to me recently that going on rides on the 4 wheels can help kick start labor. and then i mentioned that nipple stimulation and DTD can as well. So i told him that when i hit 37 we would take a ride every evening on the 4wheeler, ride into the nearest corn field, DTD and make sure to include NS, and that it will hopefully help to kick start labor! LOL there are advantages to country bumpkin living
on the serious side, while i joke and i do have bad preggo days where i am just ready to have her already, i am enjoying feeling her move. i JUST started to feel the positioning of her feet and feeling them run along my belly. i dont wanna rush it, but boy i have my days where IM DONE!
I did go on a small snowmobile ride the day I went into labor with DS, it wasn't really bumpy though, it was just around our yard to test out dh's new snowmobile. I'm not sure that's what did it but who knows
Yay for 36 weeks! That's my goal, 3 weeks seems so far away though! I know it'll be here before I know it but right now time's starting to drag. Good thing I still have a million things to get done

lol! Yay for 36 weeks!!
LOL that's so amusing Lauren, because that's what MY hubby would say. DTD, wtf is that, we haven't done anything in well, umm, months? He had his chance a few months ago but chose not to take my offer, sooooo, now he's gotta wait till I'm up to it after she's born, AND he'll have to wear a condom, which he's not fond of but will use just because "hense this oops! ". And I don't even feel bad about it, he DID have his chance LOL. I commend anyone whos this far along and can even do it once a week, not me!!
DH has gotten to the point where he is too scared to touch me even though I am really in the mood most days! I told him yesterday that he will get a pass for the next 3 weeks and then its over! I want these girls here ~36 wks so he will just have to get over it! LOL
um, for the record, there has been very little DTD going on on my end! hard to get me in the mood when i cant get my DH to make feel even remotely attractive. when i feel huge and unattractive and vocalize it, all i get in response is "your pregnant, of course your huge" !!!! um, that does NOT help. however, i will whip out some lube and get it on in the efforts to meet my daughter! after all, from what i read, isnt it the sperm/semen that is what helps it along, not the female orgasm, right??
Sperm/semen contains pitocin, which as we all know, is used in the hospitals to induce labour. If your body is close to being ready then yes, LOTS of dtd will help. Also, orgasm's DO help, because your body is contracting, which can help bring her lower into the birth canel.
It's a really weird thing, but yes, orgasm and lots of semen from hubby will help, but remember, things usually only help IF your body is close to being ready, or is ready . Doing other things like walking, eating fresh pineapple, bumpy rides etc, will help things as well.
