How long did you carry your babies? adult content

I am 38 weeks and 5 days pregnant with my fifth child. I have four other kids, but I have never been pregnant for this long! With my first daughter, I delivered at 36 weeks, the longest. With my second daughter, I delivered at 35 weeks, and with my twins, I delivered at 32 weeks. Is there anything else I can do to coax labor? I have tried walking, having sex with my DH, drinking stuff that a dog wouldn't take a second look at, acupuncture, anything I can and this baby will not come out!
