Inducing Labor

I am currently 37 wks pregnant. I went on maternity leave on friday of last week. My back was hurting alot. I am afraid now that it will take longer for me to go into labor since I am not working. My OB didn't want to check me yesterday to see if I was dilated he was afraid it would induce me into labor. He said he will induce me April 7th if my cervix looked ok. I go back next friday to see him he is going to check me then. Is there anything I can do so my cervix looks good so he will induce me on the 7th???

  • You shouldn't rush the baby- let nature take its course.
