  • lol be patient and enjoy the rest. go to blockbuster. rent 3 or 4 movies. buy a big bottle of caffeine free coke and ur favorite candy and have an "in bed" day. trust me you'll miss it. i felt like that too and on the appointment that i had worked up the courage to ask to be induced they beat me to it and told me to go to the hospital that night. i had my son at 39 weeks 2 days gestation and now i miss being pregnant. enjoy your excuse to pig out and stay in bed all day. hope ya feel better

  • They wont induce me before 40 weeks..my hospital wont even do it if you TELL them to do it..so my due date is April 22nd..so im stuck waiting til that day =P

    but im definitly going to have an in bed day today...i was supposed to go out and see my nephew because i RARELY see him...but...i dont want him to get sick...he gets sick easily and he's as cute as a button even though i dont know how buttons are cute? but i love that saying xD

  • heres some ideas to get labor started on its own...37n weeks is medically full term so things seem ok...walk, I know youre tired and feel like crap on a cracker but the walking can stimulate l;abor. There is something in semen that mixes with a ripe cervix and causes it to dialate, so take one for the team lol if you can and see if it helps. Its hard to feel crappy at the end, I am 36 weeks and want to be done too. I also know that at the end, your nose can swell up and get so stuffy so maybe its all tied in? good lucka nd hope its soon!

  • aww. yeah the last two weeks are THE worst. :( Every mama feels very uncomfortable in some way or another. BUT I don't get how there are those women who are walking around until the day before they give birth....i wish that happens whenever baby number 2 rolls around. Pamper yourself though....won't be too much time for that when the little one arrives. Feel better soon!

  • I STARTED MY LABOR BY HAVING SEX THEN A HOT SHOWER. THE LAST COUPLE WEEKS SUCK. SO MUCH IS HAPPENING TO YOUR BODY RIGHT NOW. GET UP AND GO TO THE BATHROOM AT NIGHT IT IS NOT GOOD FOR U OR THE BABY. AND TRYING LAYING ON YOUR RIGHT SIDE 3X A DAY FOR 30 MINUTES IT TAKES PRESSURE OFF YOUR MAIN BLOOD VESSEL AND WALK WALK WALK
