No.



Full term is 40 weeks. The last few weeks are extremely important for lung and brain development.

no, you are considered term, and they won't stop labor. full term is still 40 weeks, and you can go up to 42 weeks. the last few weeks are crucial to lungs and brain development.

You can try:
Nipple stimulation
Go to the nail salon get a spa pedicure and a manicure ( the spot in between your ankle and heel is a pressure point that has been linked to have something to do with your vagina and uterus -- can send you into labor. also the web part between your thumb and forefinger is also a pressure point) WORST CASE SCENARIO AT LEAST YOU'LL HAVE PRETTY NAILS FOR THE HOSPITAL.
Also, heard somewhere that if you eat an entire fresh pineapple something in the juice helps thin out your cervix.



But please don't do anything unless you know for sure your baby is a good weight. And that you are far enough along that there shouldn't be any complications!



BUT WHATEVER YOU DO DO NOT USE CASTOR OIL! IT CAN CAUSE YOUR BABY TO POOP INSIDE THE WOMB WHICH CAN CAUSE A MESS OF RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS!!!

Or she can wait until her baby is ready.



There is no way to know for sure that a baby is ready. My daughter came on her own at 39 weeks, had a collapsed lung and spent 5 days in NICU. Just because the baby should be ready, doesn't mean it is.

Enjoy your last 2 weeks..... I mean you've made it this far you'll be fine. Now when you are 3 days overdue and want baby out because you're scared of him pooping in you try acupressure to start labor but until then let your little one stay put where it's safe and warm

You are the one complaining about typical end of pregnancy discomforts. That's being negative.
