  • I agree with the other post. Your baby will come when it is ready. Be thankful you made it full term. My first child came at 34 weeks and had to stay in NICU for 2 weeks.

    You can try everything in the book, but your baby will come when it wants to come.

  • I'm in the same situation that you are in right now. I don't know how many times i tried to persuade my doctor to go ahead and send me to the hospital; because I have dilated 2 cm already and they can feel his head to and I have a week in a half left until my due date. So all I can tell you is to tough it out cause the baby will come when they are good and ready. lol

  • I somehow had this feeling thats what would be said.. but I am just sooo stinking miserable.. they say.. and I honestly feel like they are right.. that the baby will be close to if not 9 lbs.. my daughter was 8 lbs..and this one is MUCH bigger.. and painful.. Cadence wasn't painful to carry.. this one has been nothing but pressure and pains, I cain't bend over, I can't sleep without snoring, becase I can hardly breath.. nothing (clothes wise) fits.. its a rough place to be. but thanks for your comments.. I know I must be patient.. it will be worth it.. thanks!

  • The baby will come when the baby and your body are ready. Have some patience and try to relax.
