I got really scared cause a centipede crawled on me. Im almost 31 weeks and i feel a bit of cramping. Can i go into early labor cause of this?

No: Centipedes are not dangerous to humans and definitely can't cause labor. The most serious thing would be a local reaction at the site of a bite, if, in fact, the centipede bit you. You would know if you were having an allergic reaction to a bite as your skin would redden, possibly swell. If that's not happening, there's nothing to worry about and cramping may be due to dehydration. ...Read more

How do you send yourself into early labor?

BAD IDEA!: Trying to make yourself go into labor is a bad idea. The last thing to grow up is the baby's lungs so it is important not to deliver much before your due date anyway. Even when labor is induced in the hospital, it is very important to monitor the baby. Trying to induce your own labor - by any means - could hurt or even kill your baby. ...Read more
