well it sounds like your chances are pretty good! Walk walk and walk some more! I have heard NOT to paint a room, that fumes CAN throw women into labor!! My mil also tried to get me to drink castor oil. But i am not that brave. If you are ready to go into labor it can start contractions. If not....well...let's just say you will spend some alone time in the bathroom! Good luck!!

Re: could i go in laber early??

LOL, I so did the castor oil with my 1st DD...two sperate times. The first time I was not ready to go into labor and so it didn't work. The second time was 1 day past my EDD and I drank two bottles mixed with Sunny D. I will not lie...it was the most awful thing EVER! So not worth it to me...I won't ever do it again. But it did work. If you can drink it down then you'll be ok...it's the forcable BM'S that start contractions so you WILL be blowing out the back!

Also, Sex! Not gentle sex either...HEHE. That will help thin the cervix more and hopefully start contractions. I'd get contractions anytime I'd O during sex...that may help.

Nipple stimulation

walking(although it never worked for me)

Good luck.

Re: could i go in laber early??

I tried all of those things with #3. They said I was 3-4 cm I don't remember the %dialated but the PA said she could feel the water bag bulging out my cervix and I went and did all those things and It was still 12 days later! The baby will come when it is ready!

Re: could i go in laber early??

I've heard all the recommending things too- but basically that baby's gonna come when it's ready! I was dilated like you by week 37 with all 3 of mine, and the first 2 came in week 39- the last was induced in week 38. But- since your cervix is changing and the baby's head is low that's always a good sign. Have you lost your mucous plug or had any bloody show?

Re: could i go in laber early??

I know she will be here when she wants to be here i just pray that she will while my husband is off work they HAD to take this week off work so there gose vaction pay so we hope i go while he is off work so we dont have to worrie about him not getting payed while i go in laber and he has to take a few days off as we cant affored it at all.
I dont think i lost my muscs plug yet, i have some discharge a little little bit of brown in it today about 5hrs after the dr. appotiment so it could be from that we are so ready to see her , i know i need to wait in till she is ready to see us this will be DD2 and DD1 is 3 1/2 and she keeps asking me when here baby will be here
take care

Yep, walking and sex. Also, red raspberry tea.
