  • Nothing works unless your body is ready.
    I tried every natural thing in the book starting at 37wks....didn't have my son until 40w2d.

    Just sit back and ENJOY you're remaining weeks, you'll miss it. Your baby will come when s/he is ready!

  • Im 38wks and Ive tried sex and got nothing. I am 2.5 cm already and having contractions but nothing regular. Ive heard nothing works, you will go into labor when your body is ready.

    Hang in there momma. It wont be much longer. Im waiting right there with ya.

  • i am 32 weeks with my third and i have to say, you really should cherish these last weeks of quiet, eating/sleeping/showering/peeing when you want to. the baby will come whe the time is right. and when that time comes your life is over and you are living for your child instead of your comfort. i walked,sex,squats,kegels,swimming,spicy food,castor oil and visualized giving birth. my boys couldnt have cared less and came when they were ready. the whole experience from the prego test to the labor and delivery is a beautiful thing that passes far too quickly. enjoy your last weeks bc your babe will never be this close to your body or as safe again! best wishes for a healthy delivery...please let me know when you go!

  • Why on earth would you want to start labor before your baby is ready? 37 weeks isn't even full term. Relax. Your baby will come when ready.

  • Wait for your body, your baby, and Mother Nature to do their thing.
