  • Walk a lot, your'e almost there, just wait a little longer. Trust me you don't want your water to break at home it's horrible, then contractions come harder and faster. Good Luck baby will be here before you know it!

  • I'm 36 weeks and 3 days, and I could not agree with you more. My problem is that my son came at 36 weeks, and now I just want this baby to do the same thing. He was 6lbs 12oz, and this new little man feels bigger. I can't sleep, and the past two nights I have had contractions on and off. I am miserable. The best of luck to you. I wish that I could just VENT!!! But DH looks at me like I'm nuts. :( (even though he is supportive). I guess we have to look at the face that 2-3 more weeks is not going to hurt us. *sigh*

  • Walk walk walk and walk some more. 90%? Your nearly there. Walking is the best way to speed up the onset of labor.
