  • I really wouldn't do anything at all, just relax, and let YOUR baby come when YOUR baby is ready, not you.

  • 37+2 weeks meaning 39 wks? Or 37 wks + 2 days?

    Either way just let nature take it's course and be on the lookout for pre-labor signs. The only way I know of to speed things up is walking.

  • If you're not in labor, your baby isn't ready to be born. Chill. Are you shooting for a NICU stay? Being born too early can cause more complications than necessary, especially doing something as insane as bringing those complications on yourself.

  • as they not happy with how my baby I doing


    If they're truly concerned they'll order an induction or c-section. Just take care of yourself & your baby right now.

  • What do you mean not happy? I would be marching in and talking to my OB? If they think something is wrong that needed you to be induced, then why are they not doing so?
