  • Just be patient. Due dates are often off by a week or two. You can try spicy food or sex. They scheduled me to be induced with my second one, but after they gave me the enema, labor started on it's own. Keep walking and maybe add in some stairs.

  • Ask your doctor.

  • I was induced with both pregnancies & loved it! If I had another I would schedule an induction. Why are you afraid to be induced? Have you spoken to your OBGYN about it?

  • Due dates are just educated guesses and can be wrong by two weeks. You can refuse induction and c-section till you hit that 42 week mark.

    Walk walk walk walk walk and when you're tired of walking walk some more.
