? for moms that walked a lot during pregnancy

Did you end up going into labor early? I have been walking every day for awhile now to regulate my glucose, not to induce labor, and it just occured to me that maybe it might make baby come a little I'm just wondering. Thanks :)

ps. I am now almost 37 weeks.

  • I didn't go into labor early, but I wasn't overdue either. I went into the labor the day after my due date.

  • I walked a lot during both and with my second one I did go into labor a week early! LOL I was advised to walk a lot though, my OB/GYN told me it makes the delivery a lot smoother. I had two 100% natural deliveries and they were not that bad at all! GL!!!!

  • No, according to my due date, I delivered at 39 weeks, 3 days, however, I am still convinced I was 10 days ahead of that, which would put me at 41 weeks (based on when I ovulated, since we were charting).
