Here's the deal....I am due Tuesday (Feb. 17th.). For two weeks now I have been 1cm.  This past Wednesday when I went I was still only 1 cm but 50% thinned out (effaced, whatever it's called) My dr doesnt want me to go past 41 weeks so he talked to me about inducing, He's on call this weekend & said he could do it Sat or Sun or I could schedule for next week, since he's not gonna be around next weekend.  We ended up scheduling it for Thursday (Feb 19th) instead of Saturday or Sunday.  I really didn't want to be induced, wanted to let it happen naturally, not because I'm against it or anything but because I was induced with my 5 year old and laid in the hospital for 2 days before I had him, because he wasnt ready pretty much.  I guess I was just wanting some opinions of how good my chance of going into labor naturally before the 19th is.  Do you think with some walking and sex I could make it happen?  Just wanting opinions, I know you ladies probably arent doctors or specialists on this or anything! LOL!

its hard to say but, it seems lately that most of the posts going up, the moms have said that they went into labor naturally the day before they were induced :) Good luck!

Not sure, but walking couldn't hurt!

You're already dialating so it will help it along, and walking is healthy so there really isn't a negative, worse case scenario is that it doesn't work and you get induced like planned. Maybe you'll get lucky and your water will break the day of, or before your induction.
