Still Waiting HELP!!!!!!!!!!! Jesseca Ann Wilfong Due February 16; Portland, Oregon 22 posts21st Feb '13
Okay I am overdue and I just want to help jump start labor. I have heard tons of crazy things and nothing is working. I do not want to get induced but that seems to be my only option considering my mom is coming up this weekend and I don't want her visit to be wasted. I have already had my membranes stripped last week not much happened bled for like two days just a little here and there. I have no signs of contractions, and I don't know if it could be a bad sign or what. I will discuss my concerns tommrow with my doctor becuase at this point I am kind of freaking myself out. I feel like something could be wrong thats not allowing me to go into labor. But overall is there any way I can help labor come???? PLEASE I NEED HELP

Baby just isn't ready yet. I'm sorry, I know it s***s. Just keep walking around. That's about all you can do.

No, there isn't. Short of a medical induction you're pretty much wasting your time. I don't think there's anything wrong either, Due date are just an estimate, they can be off by a few weeks. Your baby will come.

I know its hard but you should try to relax as much as possible. My oldest was 42 weeks before I went into labor with her I really wish I hadn't stressed so much it really took its toll on me and made my labor harder when it did happen. I also tried everything and nothing worked . If nothing works than the best thing you can do is relax as much as you can so your ready when labor does start.
