  • Wait until the baby and your body are ready. That baby still has 3 weeks to grow, why risk it?

  • I was told sex... something with the males seamen causes the uteris to contract. But you should REALLY wait till your closer to your due date. You dont want to have complications. And also I think if your body is not ready not even sex will work

  • You just need to wait out! Go for long walks or some squats that helps right there. I once watched baby story and I saw this women drink some stuff that you use for constipation. BUT I would not recommend it either. Good Luck.

  • Get you one of those Big excerise balls and sit on it. It help relieves the hip pressure.

  • I agree with the excercise ball idea. I love mine! But you really should leave your baby where he/she is. I know it's not comfy, I'm 37 weeks too, but your baby will be much better off left alone.

  • I was soooo tired of being pregnant too!! I feel your pain. I had gone to the doctor and I was NOTHING, I was "mushy". I was soooo upset. I went home and drank some castro oil (midwives use this) and had her two days later. She was nine days early. Alot of people object to this. It tastes disgusting. But I also think 3 weeks is too early. Good Luck!

  • Castro Oil is the best way to go into labor. some even rub it on their bellies.

  • Don't do the castor oil thing. Don't try any of the natural or DIY induction techniques without talking to your doc about it. All of them carry some level of risk.
