38 weeks and hoping for an early delivery!

I'm 38 weeks today and so uncomfortable it's unbelievable. And just to top it off we're supposed to be having a two week heatwave and if yesterday was anything to go by the forecast is very accurate.  Has anyone got any tips on how to speed things up

Sorry hunny....all I can say is stay indoors or walk the malls....I've tried everything but the sex (single mom) and castor oil (gross) natural induction old wives tales and I am now 40weeks plus 2 :( I have come to the conclusion they come when they are ready. I will cross my fingers for you and hope you get the early delivery you wish for!!!!

Nothing but the meds in hospital are guaranteed to induce labor. Your baby will come when ready I know it canbe tough I'm sorry but part of it:) idont mean that snotty. I'm 8 wks 4 days with baby number six so I know the feeling but Also safest gor baby to come when ready and induced labor was harder my experience anyway and DO NOT use castor oil 95% of the time it doesnt induce labor only dehydrates u thrn ur weak in labor bcuz getting sick diharea etc. Good luck the ends close
