I was dialated to 4 and having anywhere from 2-15 contrtactions an hour from 32 weeks, so the day i hit 37 weeks I started trying everything I could to get her out. I ate about 3 pineapples, tried the caster oil, the tea, accupressure, walked MILES a day, had sex as much as i could ( i think i wore the poor boyfriend out lol), went out on the off road trails in my cousins truck... everything, and she still didnt come til exactly 39 weeks. As much as it does suck, baby will come when baby is ready and anything you do, exept maybe the pineapple and sex, is just gonna make you even more miserable. The good news is once you have your baby in your arms you forget all the crap of the last few weeks. I think you have to if you want any more of them! Good luck mama! My best advice is to try to relax (i know, easier said than done) it may seem like forever right now, but your little one will be here before you know it!
