I'm due in 3 days and I'm really doubting the baby is going to come on her own.



I've tried just about everything to help self induce labor, to avoid being induced.



I've tried sex, walking, squats, jumping jacks..
what else can I try?



(by the way my doctor will not allow me past 41 weeks due to complications during pregnancy)

I'm right there with you. My dr won't let me go past my due date, and I don't feel like she's going to come any time soon. I have 11 days. I've just been bouncing on a birthing ball constantly, having lots of sex, and walking all the time.

With both of my labors, I had no signs until I was in active labor. Don't lose hope mamma! :)

Have you tried twiddling your nipples? lol I know it sounds crazy, but the doctors actually told me to try it lol. Also, at this point, (TMI alert!!) I was masturbating several times a day because I was thinking the orgasms couldn't hurt lol. Good luck! I hope you can get the baby here without induction!

I'm praying she comes on her own.

Aww thanks :)



I remember the day I went into labor with my second that I just knew he would be 2 weeks late because he seemed so comfy. I was resolved that I was going to be pregnant for nearly a month longer than ended up happening. And with my first, I remember feeling downright pouty and generally annoyed because I didn't think she would ever be born (she came a day early)



I can relate to the hopeless feelings, ha.

Aawwww :/
My oldest came 4 days after her due date. They were going to induce me the next morning, so hopefully yours comes like mine did!

I'm hoping so. my doctor mentioned inducing me on the 15th or 16th.
I have an appointment on Wednesday to find out for sure.
As much as I want her here, I'd rather it be natural.. I'm deathly scared of having a csection.
