Hey everyone! So I am 38 weeks today and have been dilated to a 3 since friday.. (6days) I have still continued to work waiting tablesand I have also walked daily... nothing seems to be putting me into labor... I have ccontractions but not consistent. ... I have had a glass of wine with a warm bath, spicy foods, pineapple I feel like ive tried everything! ! I have pressure and she has dropped but what else... I know sex but we do not live together and its kind of hard at this moment.. I refuse to do the castor oil thing... help please any other ideas??

There's things to try. But in all honesty nothing is going to help unless baby ready. (And I'm due in 12 days so I feel your pain)

Everyone hates to hear this. But really nothing will work unless your body is ready. Find ways to relax and pass the time. Dilation at this point and time means nothing. I hate that they check and get so many saying I am this and why is nothing happening. Just puts stress/frustration that is not needed.

My third I had everything under the sun for 5-8 weeks(diheara for 8 weeks, contractions for 5 weeks, losing my mucus plug for 5 weeks and so on). So I understand the end is hard. But before you know it baby will be here.

Read a book, date nights, hanging out with friends, massage, pedicure and/or manicure, go for walks(great help in bring baby down and helps during labor), yoga/birthing ball - do figure 8's, front and back, circles, side to side movements - great for positioning baby and helps with hip pressure, watch movies, baths and what you think will help you relax and pass the time.

I can definitely relate ladies, I am 38+5days and feeling some of the same pains as well,mucus plug slowly falling out and mild contractions but babygirl just isn't ready yet so I have just been taking it one day at a time,not to mention I am having a serious case of insomnia too. 9days til edd

Good luck ladies !
