Trainer Emily Skye Tries the 'Bikini Baby Belly Boogie' to Induce Labor as She Hits 40 Weeks
Emily Skye is ready to meet her baby girl NOW.
The fitness trainer is officially at a full term pregnancy, and she’s desperate to induce labor — so she came up with the “Bikini Baby Belly Boogie” to try and dance the baby out.
“This poor little girl has a nut bag as a mother, no wonder she doesn’t want to get out!” Skye, 32, joked on Instagram. “C’MON baby girl don’t be shy!! Sure, I’m as crazy as they come but I promise I’ll love you as much as the universe and there will NEVER be a dull moment with @recdedmond and me as parents!”
“This takes belly dancing to a WHOLE new level right?!”
Skye’s daughter should be coming soon. The Australian fitness influencer posted on Wednesday that she’s started getting Braxton Hicks contractions, sometimes called “false” contractions, which can start before labor and even in early pregnancy.
“I’ve been getting regular Braxton Hicks contractions roughly every five mins apart — they’ve been happening for over six hours now as well as period type pains & aching in my lower back & sides,” she wrote.

But after trying “every single trick and old wives tale to try to induce labor,” she’s still waiting.
“It’s been up and down,” Skye previously told PEOPLE. “It’s not as fun as I thought it would be. But having said that, it is an amazing experience and I love it. It’s just awesome to be able to grow a human and feel little kicks like that.”
