Self Inducing at 37-38 wks???? Update in Red
My Friend is due around the same time as my self and she just asked me what she could do at home to induce labor!! I told her I didn't know anything but I didn't think trying was safe... has anyone here heard of someone doing this??? She has me freaked out.... I Know its her body and her baby but thats NOT safe is it?? She asked me about some kind of oil? and running... NONE of that is safe is it?? I mean we're not even considered full term yet!!!
Update: She was talking about Pre-something Oil... NOT Castor OIL Thank goodness!! but I have pretty much got her talked out of trying (or at least she is telling me she isn't anyways) But I also explained that 37 wks is NOT considered Full term and she needs to wait til she is at least 39 wks if she chooses to try to induce... but that it may not work anyways!! Although she is now 38 wks so if she can wait just ONE more week then I will be happy and NOT so freaking worried!!
