I am 35 weeks along in this pregnancy, and my tummy is measuring is measuring 41 weeks. The Delivering Hospital just called me 20 minutes ago and scheduled an on the phone type interview for delivery on July 15th. That right there would put me at 38 weeks, and if my tummy grows like it is now, my tummy would be at almost 44-45 wks. My OB told me he wasn't going to make me go till the end of July due to the risk of Uterine Rupture. So I need some advice, should I get this labor going on my own around July 9th, as I would be 37 weeks at that point? If so, what are the best, and safest ways to do it?
Please no bashing as I don't feel that would help me right now, all I know is my body will not make it that long, even on bed rest. Cause they say that you should not lay on your back during pregnancy, and I can't lay on my left or right side without causing a lot of pain. I can't walk very well, and I can't walk around without having to sit down about 5-10 minutes later cause it feels like my legs are going to give out on me. Please moms, I need to find out what is the best way to do the labor thing.
