  • There's really nothing you can do but be patient. I know it's uncomfortable but unless you are induced the baby is going to come when it wants to.

  • I would just keep walking and having sex...just relax if you can? I'm sure it won't be that long? good luck.

  • Suposedly, Raspberry leaf tea will induce labor. It didn't work for me, but it worked great for my friend. I finally decided to have the dr induce labor. After I set the date to be induced I went into labor naturally and had a very healthy baby boy. I hope this works for you. You can also google some of the stuff.

  • I would give your doctor a call. I felt the same way. My doctor stripped my membranes for me and told me to go out and have a very heavy meal and walk afterwards. Presto!! I went into labor the next morning! It worked.

    Good luck. Enjoy the experience. I loved being pregnant - every minute of it.
