well today im 37weeks and 5 days, went for an ultrasound and the babys head is all the way down as far as she can go,but my cervix still hasn't opened any! she weighs 7.2lbs. she is my first baby how much longer do you think it will be, ugh, her head is so far down it cuts the circulation off to my legs and feet. does anyone know about how much longer i should be waiting for her to get here!!

  • Just let nature take its can come any time from now on out....most Dr's wont let you go over 42 weeks, a day inside is worth 2 on the outside, so let baby stay in there until she or he is ready! Dont be discouraged though in either case its not too far off, good luck!!!

  • I really don't think anyone can honestly tell you when you'll go into labor.... you just got to wait . you should be going to the Dr. alot right now so ask them on your next visit.

  • She will be here soon momma. Word of advise, cherish every moment that you are carrying her inside of you. When she is born time flies by so fast. Good Luck!

  • If it helps at all, one of my friends was totally closed up and had a baby a day or 2 after. I went around 4cm dilated for weeks.

  • Unless you have health risks, you should walk or sit on one of those exercise balls, its helpful to encourage labor, also, if yourup to it, som well bedroom time can do the trick too. But trust me, babygirl0782 is right, once thw baby is out tim we flys. Yesterday my son was born, in 2 weeks he will be 6months already. I dont know where the time went :)

  • Im not sure what to say, Im at 32 weeks and I fell my babys head way down. The pain and cutting off circulation too. My Doctor told me to Walk and walk alot! But it hurts so bad.
    Good Luck ~ Pray for any day now!
