Induction at 39weeks
Soo my doctor said if I dont go into labor on my own by 38 weeks they will have to schedule an induction for Aug 10 which I will be 39 weeks exactly...I am 50% effaced & 1-2 cm dilated & I believe my son is at a -2 station this is my 4th baby & normally I would have been more dilated by now...but anyways I much rather go into labor on my own but idk what else to do & next week at 37wks I will be getting a membrane sweep so hopefully that kick starts things & sex is out of the question because I have been on pelvic rest since week 20 due to complications...sooo any advice from you ladies would be real helpful thanks mommies

A lot of natural ways to induce labor are a little physical, like squats, sex, walking etc. If your on bed rest you can try eating spicy food, drinking red raspberry lead tea and fresh pineapple

Sex, walking, hoping, praying. Lol.  I was induced at 39 weeks with my second and it was actually quite nice. As a planner, setting up a time to deliver was really convenient! No joke- it has his benefits. No issues with the induction and probably easier than when I went into labor without intervention with another birth. Anyway, you've got time. Aug 10 is far enough away that things could absolutely change. Hope all goes well!
