Quoting Rachelbabyxx:" Lol, that shows how much you know. My baby will be FULL term at 37 weeks meaning if they come around that time they won't be premature.. look it up. My midwife says the same :)......."


Your baby won't be considered premature, no, but being born at 37 weeks still poses the possibility of health problems. There is a reason pregnancy is 40 weeks.

Quoting Rachelbabyxx:" People if you want to be negative on this page please don't.. it's not a bad thing to try out things to get labour started and if they don't work then that's good too :)"

Well, just don't get your hopes up, lol. Baby won't come til it's ready.

Yeah I know and there's is no harm in trying like you say she'll come when she's ready and I don't mind waiting :) and I'm always on my ball,, she feels low though so hopefully she'll come when she ready! :)

You have no way of knowing that YOUR baby is ready to come out at 37 weeks. If you try and bring on labor like that, you might find she has breathing problems, and there have been studies showing that babies born too early(even as late as 37 weeks) have lower reading and math scores later on. Waiting until labor starts on its own is giving your baby the best chance.



Also, if you try and start labor on YOUR own, that means the baby isn't coming on HER own, as you claim you want.

You're just term, full term is 40 weeks. Here's a thought, sit down, shut up and wait. Your kid would be here if he/she was ready. :idea:

Your a week behind me, so I am right there with you. Just try to stay active and busy so you wont think about it so much, and these next few weeks will fly by. Is this your first? I remember I thought my first pregnancy would drag on forever! :lol: Now I have a toddler. I promise you wont be pregnant forever. Also I advise enjoying your sleep while you can.

I wasn't asking a stupid question... I never told someone like you to answer with stupid comments.
