  • Just because your due date comes doesnt mean the baby is ready. If the baby and your body is not ready you wont go in to labor even if you try everything under the sun. It may take another week or it could be tonight, You made it this far just wait

  • I would just go on walks to try and let gravity do its work. For me, I'm 37wks, I notice that going up my stairs quickly at home always makes me contract a little. But its only when I go up them faster then normal... With my first I went to the mall and walked around for a few hours window shopping etc. He was 4 days late but when I did that I went into labor that night. GL with labor when it does come!!!

  • Yes just because you are due does not mean baby is ready. They can only estimate when baby comes. Only you baby and body know when you concieved. So you just need to be patient. Keep think my baby needs it so i need to just wait for when baby is here. Because before you know it all be done and you will think it went by so fast. I'm proud of your Dr for saying wait instead of push for baby to come out before baby is ready. That is were so many more babies are ending up in the NICU because they deliver baby before it is ready.

  • i don't really get the rush. just wait a couple of weeks. it's very likely that things will happen naturally within that time frame. :) good luck!

  • "wait" is advice... you shouldn't ask for advice and expect to like all the advice given
