    I went into labour at 34 weeks. We DTD the night before and felt a popping sensation, kind of like someone punched my cervix, during DTD. The next morning as I got out of bed I started leaking and went onto full blown labour a short time later.

    Things to note: I was still working and I was told at my appointment 2 days earlier that baby had started to move down. So who knows if DTD brought on labour. We were definitely not trying to bring on labour either.

    Maybe? Lol. By the end I was so sick of sex, walking and putting evening primrose tablets up there! But I did only have a 4 hour labour from when waters broke to her being born

    Didn't work for us, though I'm sure DH would have liked us to try the theory out more!

    Ive DTD every night for about 2 weeks currently 38 weeks and no labour yet. although i am 1cm dilated so maybe it's helping.

    also been on the breast pump each night from 37 weeks.

    plus all the usual walking, raspberry leaf tea and tablets, evening primrose oil. i hope i have a quick labour like MrsOhara

    I think it did. We Dtd around 630, an hour later and my waters had broken!

    We were told by a midwife you would need to DTD 10 times consecutively for it to work and really at that point who would you call the ambulance for? The labouring Mum or the fluid drained Dad
