  • Patience!! LOL.

    I know at 37 weeks, that word has no meaning whatsoever, ha ha. Try trampolining?? Nah, seriously, baby will come when he/she is good and ready and not before. There's very little you can do about it at this point.

  • 37 weeks isn't a deadline for dilation. Baby isn't ready yet. Many women are even hard and closed until the day labor starts. Dilation is not an indicator for labor unless it's progressing within close amounts of time.
