Quoting Kelsey Gilmer:" Thank you i wasnt trying to make you feel bad just make you aware you don't have to agree as long as its not for medical reasons"

Yeah I know you werent trying to make me feel bad :) I just dont want you to think I was giving you crap or disagreeing with you after you posted about your loss! And I honestly dont disagree. I only have the one other pregnancy to compare anythign with so I have no right to disagree with any other Momma. :)

Here's hoping the baby stays in another 5 and they don't offer induction, just because she's being selfish. I would rather have a 42 weeker than a 37 weeker, but then again I care more about the wellbeing of my child than myself. :roll:

at 37 weeks i was exactly the same, i had insanely bad back ache due to some underlying problem with my spine that doctors and specialists cannot figure out. so for a week i tried: rasberry leaf tea, sex, walking, bouncing on a yoga ball, curries, pineapple and walking up and down the stairs numerous amount of times. but unless the baby wants out then the baby wont be forced out unless by an official doctor/nurse so i understand why some of you ladies are kicking off but at the end of the day when the baby wants out it will come, if it doesnt then it wont no matter what you do. i gave birth at 39 weeks and everything was fine even tho my midwife said my little boy would be too small to survive as my belly only measured 30 weeks but my little man proved her wrong. so in my experience the baby wont come out unless it chooses too or if you get induced so chill people it was just an innocent enquiry

I totally agree...it won't matter what you do..labor won't happen until your body is ready!

I was 41 weeks and 5 days when my doctor induced in 115 degree heat of Arizona in August. I lugged that baby til the last minute, sweating, swollen, tired, and even worked up until the last week of my pregnancy. When I finally had her after 12 hours of painful pitocin labor, it was the most beautiful moment of my life and would never ever change that moment. You can wait :) Just get some extra sleep, you're gonna need it.

Pregnancy isn't supposed to feel good. I agree with all these ladies... You're being a little selfish. Some of us are high risk and would love to make it to 40 weeks!!!!!!!! Smdh.
