  • i tried EVERY single natural way to induce labor and nothing helped. i had strong, regular and irregular contractions and hard early labor for 4 days before I had my baby. everyone was convinced i was going to deliver early...but, no, my baby came the day i turned 42 weeks pregnant. so no matter what you do, if your baby and body aren't's not gonna happen when you want it to.

  • I'm 40 weeks as of July 11th. so now 40 weeks and 1 day and only 2 almost 3 Cm and they will not do anything unless they see there is fetal stress or some other health issue that would affect the outcome to the pregnancy.They feel a baby will come when ready and to push it along may actually be bad.However,all my family is overdue by weeks so i'm sure i will be waiting a bit until i deliver.I have been walking and things and so far my body is showing no signs it's ready besides mild discomfort and swelling.Good luck to you!
