I'm getting nervous about going to my appointment on Monday. I'm afraid that they are going to check me and tell me that nothing has changed and that I'm still 0 dilated and 0 effaced. I've tried everything in the book basically. Bouncing on a birthing ball, lots of sex, lots of walking, bumpy car rides, Evening Primrose Oil, ect...I guess I should just accept the fact that this little booger is comfy and cozy where he is and doesn't want to leave. I can't help but think that there is something wrong with me. I have never gone into labor on my own. My doctors keep telling me that she won't let me go pass 40 to 41 weeks. She said that ifthe baby stays in there too long that it could hurt both of us. Most likely she is going to want to induce me some time next week. Which would be great because when I'm 41 weeks my kids start school. I live 45 mins from the hospital so if I do go into labor, they would have to go with me. They would miss a few days of school, I wouldn't be able to go school shopping or any of that. My boyfriend has to work that whole week, so he can't help. So the only good that comes out of them inducing me would be me seeing my son and me be able to get my kids in school. I really wanted to go into labor on my own. I plan on trying for another baby before I'm 30 ( I'm 26 now). Maybe I'll have better luck then. Sorry just wanted to vent and rant. Wasn't looking for any answers or anything.

You're not due yet so I wouldn't be concerned. Changes can happen overnight.
