didnt labor last time, had a section(due to failure of babies head to engage)... am booked in for wednesday for another one, but really want to go into labor myself and do it naturally...

Dabihp, my ds2 didnt engage and I was induced due to other complications. Before my waters were broken I was prepd for a section and taken to theatre wher a doctor did the job. All I can remember is that she was making juicing motions with her arm!
