I'm 38+1 and can not wait to meet my little girl. I am due July 9th and really thought the other night that tonight is the night as I was having regular pains for an hour that were quite strong until they just stopped, I was so gutted. I've been trying everything to help bring on labour from Hot Curry, Raspberry leaf tea as I'm in so much pain below and suffering BH often with lower back ache. Any suggestions lol.

Bigger doesn't always mean healthier.
I'd at least wait until 37+ weeks before you think about inducing.
Just to be on the safe side.
That's just me though.

My doc is inducing me at 39 weeks as well.
But just because YOU haven't had any health problems, doesn't really mean that this baby is healthier. There are are babies born who still have to be in the NICU due to their due dates being wrong. I'm not trying to be rude here, just saying. Until the week of your induction, I wouldn't try anything, just to be on the safe side. I bet would hate for your baby to come out and have to be in th NICU because you couldn't wait and induced labor on your own.
KWIM?

I am 37 weeks and 2 days! I am SO over being pregnant! I have 2 girls that I have to chase after and I am so tired! I am having a girl! I go to the doctor tomorrow so they can do an ultrasound to check my fluid. Doctor thinks it may be to low. SO if it is too low they will be sending me to the hospital to have the baby! I am ready for her to come. I have been doing Evening Primrose Oil since 36 weeks and then last night I made Scalini's Eggplant Parmigana. This recipe can be found online. It is said to put you into labor within 48 hours. I had some false labor last night, but nothing else has happened. Also, I started drinking Red Raspberry Tea last night too. SO I am ready to get this show on the road. But if I don't go into labor by the 11th my doctor will induce me on that day. I can't wait. I am nervous about having 3 kids, but I think I will sleep better when I get to sleep when she is here.

Well last night was night number 3 contractions, back pain, and nausea that comes and goes.



I am 36 and 1/2 weeks but they said last visit that I am probably 37 1/2. Either way if I go into labor in the next week or so I will be able to have a vaginal delivery. If not they are going to c-section due to the risks for my hip.



So I'm hoping its very soon!

Yeah, I had hip surgery 3 years ago from a car wreck. I have pins and screws and all that fun stuff. So if he measures too big they don't want me risking more injury to my hip.



But of course if possible I want to give birth vaginally. We will see. Next OB appointment is Thursday morning. Hoping she will check to see if I have dilated any. We are so close though, and its ALL I think about. haha
