"Getting things started" before they start on their own, especially at 37 weeks, IS forcing her out. Many women on here have had 37 weekers who needed to spend time in the NICU. We DO know our facts. Most of us LIVE these facts every day. I am a mom to a 36 weeker, a 35 weeker, and a 37 weeker.



Your due date, if you look carefully will be written as EDD or EDC, which means ESTIMATED due date, or ESTIMATED Date of Confinement. You're not the only one who has ever come in here asking about kickstarting labor at 37 weeks(some have even asked about it a little earlier than that), and they are told the same things you have been told. A) that nothing will work until your body is ready, and B ) Your due date may be off by as much as 2 weeks.

You don't know what will or won't "hurt." Some home remedies are harmless. Walking, rocking on a yoga ball, sex...harmless. Because that's not going to make your body go into labor unless its 100% ready. But certain methods, like n****e stimulation, can ABSOLUTELY force your body into labor before your baby is ready. Unless you know the severity of what you're doing and its potential effects, you should probably stop being rude

Most of the women who answered you DO have children(I have 3 and am due with my 4th in July), and we DO look after them. Mine are currently sleeping.

I just wanted to say that even though I gave you some tips, you don't actually know that the baby is 'ready'
I did all the home remedies to have my 'growing nicely' baby and when she was born she was small for gestation and spent a few days in scbu because she couldn't keep her body temperature up. Then she had incredibly low weight gain the first few weeks and almost ended up in hospital on a drip and having tests. She lost quite a bit of weight dropped to 4lbs and had a hard time keeping weight on.
She was born at the same gestation as my other 2 who were completely fine.
I didn't think an almost 39 weeker would be so small and have body temperature issue and weight gain problems,
chances are if you had your baby tomorrow shell probably be fine, but it does happen.

Well duh your going to do as you please, and that includes hurting your baby, just don't expect anyone to give you advice on how to do that.

Shit. I was actually being nice.
And I was pretty much the ONLY one that actually answered your question.

Mmm, nope. I see your invitation to get off the page and I'm opting to politely decline.
Comes on time? Yeah, that works with train schedules. Not pregnancy. Each baby bakes at a slightly different rate. Some women have given birth at 37 weeks. Some women here have gone 42+ weeks. Why? Because that's just how long their baby needed.

Well I was right about the bi polar. First its "how can I start labor", then its "oh your right shes going to come when she wants", then its "my baby is healthy so there is nothing wrong with wanting her out early", now its "I only wanted to know how to make sure my baby comes on time". Seriously? Are you even for real? You know what, don't even worry about waiting out the 40 weeks for the important brain development, that poor baby already has the sad fate of having your dumbass dna.

At the end of they come when they're ready.
I can't really talk because I did what you're asking with all if my babies, my first 2 were fine, 3rd baby not so much. I'm just thankful that nothing "worked" at 37weeks because she would've been smaller and Maybe even sicker than she was.
But I have learnt from that and will never try to self induce again.

I'm going to go with "no" to getting off the page. It's a public forum. You opened yourself to the comments when you posted your topic.
