  • She isn't going to go into labor until her body is ready. The due date can be off as much as 2 weeks in either direction. She just needs to be patient and relax. I know how uncomfortable that she is. Just be patient.

  • then her body isn't ready lol. I am glad she made it full term though, most twins come early. Sex and walking are the best most effective ways. There are herbal remedies she could try, but without a midwife to talk to she shouldn't try them.

    good luck. and remember you aren't overdue until after 42 weeks.

  • Ask her OB to induce, I don't see a problem... she's full term with twins! Yay!
