  • Just be patient. 35 weeks could mean 33 weeks or 37 weeks. Baby will come when it's ready.

  • Yes, you can wait. Baby will come when baby is ready. 36 weeks isn't always term. My son was in a NICU being forced to eat and breathe at 38 weeks because he just wasn't ready. I know it's exciting momma! But don't risk yours and baby's safety over a few weeks! Best wishes!

  • Mine got smaller with each pregnancy... don't count on size. Also, boys develop slower than girls, esp lung function, Every day in the womb is like a week outside (as far as physical development) when you get to the end of your term, better to be patient, they come when they are ready. Speeding up mother nature is dangerous.

  • yeah you can wait at 35 weeks you never know you might go in early so i would wait and i went one day past my due date and that sucked but im sure you can wait trust me.

  • wait! but at like 39+ weeks there is a tea drink i forget the name. and love making hehe will help progress it. if you are late then membrane sweeps usually make it happen within 72 hours of getting it.

  • Sex - or so the doctor told me when I was ready to have my first baby (and the baby was ready but labor hadn't come yet) . There's something about the sperm that weakens the mucous plug. As your doctor about it - My child is 22 now - This could have been proven as false in the last 22 years - or proven to be a mind trick docs played on us back then. LOL
