Quoting Rachelbabyxx:" Yeah I know, and I'm not forcing her out.. Lol I just want her to come when she ready and they're ready ... [snip!] ... I'll be having the sweep on the 2nd april but would like her to come on her own so wanted some tips to get things started :)"


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.

Yes you guys are right! If she's not here by my due date then I should start all this? :)

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:

I know FULL term is 40 WEEKS now so stop reading a commenting telling me to sit down and shut up you're so rude! Don't act like you know it all I was being polite I don't need people like you telling me what to do!

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.

Well, when you say "Shows how much you know" to women who've had children before and are informing you that in order to truly be full term you are 40 weeks along, you came across as rude yourself. There ARE doctors that say full term is any time between 37 and 41 weeks, but there are even more that will tell you why delivering closer at 39 or after is better for the baby's development.



You posted on a PUBLIC forum, and that means people are open to give their opinions and say what they'd like. So, you can ignore the comments you don't like, or get mad at every single one of them. Personally, I say suck it up and move on.
