Im currently 36 weeks and 3days and im ready to have my baby. I want her out at 37 weeks. I go to the doc thursday and hopeing im thined out and dialted. I know most of you will say i should want to wait etc but im beyond misrable. This is # 3 and i have never felt like this when i went 2 weeks ago to get an ultrasound baby was already 6 punds 8oz. I have lots of pressure down there and sleep idk what that is anymore. My second came at 37 weeks and was just fine. Any suggestions to get labor started.

So, you're willing to have a baby in the nicu because YOU'RE miserable? That is the very definition of selfish.

One baby being ok at 37w does not make another baby ok at 37w. Sending sticky dust to you, hoping your baby stays in for another 3 weeks :evil:



Really though, your doctor probably won't even check you (just like in one of your last posts when they wouldn't check you at 35 weeks, lol)

Time;



But you can try walking, sex, yoga ball, pineapple



Or try the most obvious and stop being so impatient and let your LO come when they are ready. Last few weeks suck We know. suck it up.

Time and patience, you've made it this far. You can do it a little longer.

I think your baby is worth the misery. Stick it out. Nothing will happen until your body is ready. Take a bath. take a Tylenol. take a nap. Bake something. Meditate. Idc.

Here's to all the negativity :P
I had all 3 of mine at 37 weeks and they were just fine no NICU nothing. Im not saying nothing will go wrong or be wrong with hers but My doc said 37 is term. I had my membranes stripped all 3 times.

You should wait for a little longer, it will be alot easier. I had a preemie at 36 weeks and it defenitly was not my choice. She was 4'11 and had a TON of problems especially her digestive tract which made her constantly fussy. I wish I could have kept her in all 40 weeks

I feel your pain, but honestly waiting is the only thing that will help until baby is ready. My baby measured 5 pounds when I was 32 weeks with an ultrasound. Those things can be off by 1 or 2 pounds either way, though. It's miserable, my body hurts all the time, but it's worth it. :)

your due date can be off 2 weeks either way, stop being selfish. i had a wide range of health problems with my 2nd child and even tho i felt like taken sand paper to my skin i still would have kept in the full 40 weeks, he ended up coming at 35 weeks and still has some issues today

First if all some of you all are very rude. I had my first 2days before my due date and i know what is it to deal with a very very sick child that they didnt even think will make it last oast 24 hours. So shame on you all for being how can i say in a nice way B****s. I just asked for ways to start labor does it mean its going to happen no. And to the one that want to laugh that my doc hadnt checked me yet @ 35 weks due i figured she wouldnt but she is this time she had already told me. Rude rude some people can be!!!!
