  • I went in for a regular weekly doctor's appointment 4 days before my due date... I was 1 cm dilated and barely effaced. I was feeling fine and, like you, thinking that my baby would NEVER come! I went home that night & started having contractions. Don't worry---- babies know when it's time! A friend of mine went almost 2 weeks past her due date, and her baby is perfectly healthy! A due date is just an estimate... Just be patient, I know it's hard!

  • You could try a hot bath too or walking, if you can. I didn't walk at 39 weeks pregnant.

  • Try walking. I induced my labor by walking A LOT and having sex. I dnt remember if I had sex. lol but I know I walked a lot! And boom 6 inc dilated and 80% efaced. good luck!

  • Three days past my daughters due date the dr did a stretch and sweep, not at all plesant and then she told me to go home clean the floors, go for a long walk, just basically to be very active. I went into labour at 5ish the following morning and she was born at 8:10 am. Just be patient, I know it's hard.
    Best wishes!

  • You aren't due yet, so don't stress. I was dilated to 1 for 2 weeks. Full term is 40-42 weeks. You baby will get here when its ready.
