[time to pray :D] UPDATE!!! for everyone who read earlier

Well, I went to the doctors and he said that my body wants to deliver.. but I'm not in labor :(
My normal appt with him s this Friday-- he said If I don't deliver by then, we'll make a date for me to be induced [which they usually do 10 days before your due date.] So, I might be induced in a week.

Let's just hope if I walk some more I'll go into labor tonight. Does anyone think I will?

  • Hoping for the best for you... I went to the DR today and got scheduled for next Thursday. I hope it comes earlier. I'm just so done. Keep doing what you are doing and maybe you will go into full labor. I'll be crossing my fingers for you!

  • I ate a dozen hot wings for dinner 2 nights in a row!! Then this morning I walked a mile and climbed up and down 2 flights of stairs about 15 times-- He said my cervix thinned out A LOT since he saw me last Thursday, could that be a result of my determination? If I walk more do you think I could go into labor tonight? HONEStLY!

  • Walking never hurts. You can also try a bath. Go out and do something, maybe go out to dinner, or go to the mall and walk around. If you keep your mind off of it things tend to happen faster because you are not stressing about it.

  • Well mama, honestly, if your body were ready to deliver, it WOULD deliver! Why are they saying they are going to have to induce you????
    I wouldnt get induced if I were you, id let nature take its coarse, pitocin raises your risk for a c section by 50% :(
