Don't you think every woman is uncomfortable at the end of pregnancy? That's what being pregnant is all about. Wait and be patient. That's all you can do

OP I went to 41 weeks 1 day and then got induced. I had a 9 lb baby and my 3rd trimester was miserable, especially because my due date was in August.

Theres a diff in being unconfortable and having pain from a previous accident. Momma, try accupuncture and massage therapy, hopefully one of them can give you some pain relief. My dr said swimming should also help with pain!

Sex, Sex, and o did I mention sex? We were joking about it with the pediatrician yesterday. Best way around. That's how they got there and that's what helps bring them out!:lol:

Castor oil does not make you go into labor. The only thing that does is induction or the baby is ready. There are things you can do to help it along, but castor oil is stupid and doesn't work. Not healthy. Try walking, sex, spicy foods, squats, evening primrose oil (take capsules orally and you can insert two into your vagina at night and let dissolve into a pad overnight, helps with effacing). If you've been in a motorcycle accident beforehand you should really be seeing a chiropractor. Seeing a chiro during pregnancy helps you with labor (not to go into labor, but just makes labor easier on your bones which are very pliable right now). You can also try massage and ask them to hit the pressure points that help induce labor.

And the doctor doesn't know that the baby is already 7 lbs ultrasounds can be off. Plus just because you say you are 37 weeks your due date could be off by 2 weeks. Wait it out, trust me. At the end everyone is ready. I had Peyton at 36 weeks and 5 days, he decided to come on his own. I was scared as shit. Wait it out, it's only a few more weeks.

I never said I thought pregnancy was going to be easy especially at the end. But this being my 1st pregnancy and the horrible pains I'm having I figured i would ask and turn to women who are going through or have been through this same pain... My husband doesn't know what I'm going through and it nice to be able to turn and talk to yall but for the ones who come off with the rude answers and as I feel biting my head off for asking a question I dont need your remarks. I said I was "considering" taking the oil but my mind is not made up that's why I turned to yall!! I wouldn't do.anything to harm my baby just a 1st time mommy to be asking 1st time questions so please like I said just a question DON'T JUDGE or bite my head off thanks

I do go to a chiropractor we've been working on my back for a long time just guess with the extra weight it makes it that much worse :/ figured I would ask yall on here instead of just assuming and going to the store n getting the stuff yall are experienced and probably know more about this stuff than I do that's why I asked

Honestly, I personally feel that drinking castor oil is stupid but that doesn't matter I did ask a midwife I have known for years about it and it doesn't make you go into labor unless your body is ready AND they don't even suggest you take this until you are at least 40 weeks.
