Merry Christmas Eve!!

This Christmas the Schwartz family hung tight at their hometown in Paducah, Kentucky. I didn’t want to travel being this close to my due date. I didn’t get to see a lot of my family this year, which I really hate, but I have been having terrible contractions all day and I received doctors orders to not travel. I am not really sure if they are the real thing or not but the baby has definitely dropped causing a ton of pelvic pain. At this point of pregnancy you are so ready and just so miserable. My contractions/pain are always at night time too and I really don’t know why.

So I have been talking to a ton of mommas and here are the top “how I started labor naturally tricks”, just from moms that I know. I just wanted to share them with y’all if you are pregnant or maybe one day you will be pregnant. I am going to list the most popular to least popular that I have heard of!

  1. Pineapple- Pineapple has to be the MOST common. I have heard moms saying they ate pineapple and their water broke the next day. I did not know this when I was pregnant with Grayson. I have ate ton of pineapple and I was dilated at a 2 last week so I will let you guys know if it made me dilate anymore.
  2. Sex- I would say this is definitely the second most common way to naturally go into labor. You just have to convince your hubby you are not hurting the baby. But stats show that women go into labor a week after they have sex.
  3. Walking/ Exercise
  4. Spicy Food
  5. Membrane Sweep- One friend told me that her doctor did this and she would never do it again. It must beĀ  un-comfortable. Your doctor has to preform this procedure and I am little scared to try it honestly.
  6. Castor Oil- This has to be the most disgusting form and I will not do this trick
  7. Sitting on an Exercise Ball. Bouncing lightly on a ball is suppose to help you go into labor? I tried this with Grayson and it didn’t work.

Note that I am not a medical professional and I am just simply giving you examples of tricks I have tried. I am not influencing you to try any of these.

I hope you have the best Christmas with your family. This will be the last Christmas with just me, Chris, and Grayson. I am glad I get this special time with him but we really can’t wait to meet the new baby.

Merry Christmas,
