  • Yes there is no way of know. But you are close to that days since you are past due.

  • probably if sex was going to put you in labor, it would do it within 12 hours, but there's no sure thing that it will. soooooo you just might have to wait a couple more weeks :) gl!!!

  • You could go at any time since you are 40 weeks, but it's hard to say when you will go. Depends on when the baby is ready. Sex doesn't always work, I tried and it never worked.

  • it's pretty common to start having contractions, then for things to stop for a day or 2. gl :)

  • Due dates are estimated and can be as long as 42 weeks. I went over 42 weeks with my first baby. Sex doesn't make babies come. They come when they are ready.
