  • They will not unless the baby is in distress. Try to vacuum the house a lot. Umm power walking. don't push yourself to far though your body will know when to stop. Either that or you will know mentally to stop.

  • Most docs won't do it until 39 weeks at the earliest. Hang in there, you won't be pregnant forever.

  • sorry, mama. i know this is very hard!
    have you tried a chiropractor?
    are you getting enough water?
    are you eating healthy food every 3 hours?
    are you getting some sunshine?
    i wish you the best of luck!!!!

  • Your dr won't induce you I was a week late and they still wouldn't my sister in law got induced on her due date bc her mom came in from another country for the birth but he wouldn't do it sooner my dr even said if I went into labor at 37 weeks they'd try to stop it? Which is dumb bc I know ppl who do go tht early but anyway I think its best not to get your hopes up I'm sorry I've been there it sucks

  • my doctor asked me if I wanted induced, but he couldn't do it no less than 5 days because you have to have compilcations or a problem with the baby

  • My midwife told me she has a theory for why woman are so miserable at the end of their pregnancy. It is to ensure them not being too scared for labor. By the time babies are born their mothers will be willing to go through anything to get them out :D

  • The pain down your leg is sciatica and it's aggravated by walking. So stop walking and put your feet up! 37 weeks is too early to be induced yet. Have you tried getting your mind off things? Watch a comedy, get some rest, sit outside and get some sunshine. The last month is the hardest :)
