  • Cleaning brings on contractions. Doesn't mean baby will come but it will bring contractions.

  • I am almost 38 weeks too, and I too have so many things to do stil. My doctor said the baby`s head is down, so she is ready. I cleaned the whole house yesterday, vacuumed, moped the floor, bathrooms and so forth, still not in labor. So I think it didn`t put me in labor, bu I`ve heard it can. Good luck!
