    Default Did DTD really help bring on labour?

    As the title suggests I'm wondering if it actually helped you? Stories please

    We think it did for us. We dtd before going to bed, woke up to strong contractions at 2am.

    Nope. Not at all. I tried just about every trick out there (except cod liver oil) to try and bring on labour and nothing worked! I was induced at 41+5

    I went to my OBGYN 4 days overdue and he done an internal and told me not to hold my breath and that nothing was happening I was still high, not dialated, not effaced, plug was still in etc
    So I went home DTD and went into labour 6 hours later !
    Shove that OBGYN

    Who knows. I had a stretch and sweep at 40 weeks exactly at 4pm and the midwife suggested having sex/orgasms to help kick things along. So we did three times between 5pm and 9pm and I woke at 11pm in labour.

    But could all be a coincidence!

    Nope! Did it every day, several times a day from 37 weeks. I went to 40+5 and it was such a chore that we both groaned at the thought lol.

    Do you think that because you both thought it was a chore that's why it didn't work? I've heard that if you aren't really into it then it won't work. Totally a mental thing maybe lol
