They say to walk a lot, and sex, but I'm due in 5days and have been doing both of them, and have been 1cm for over a month now. So disappointed. So uncomfortable. In pain. Being my second I was absolutly sure I was going to go early, because I was a week early with my first. The stretch marks are horrendous. I never got any with my first, and they hurt so bad like I'm going to split right open. Yesterday I got asked if I was having twins. My belly is that huge. I said nope just one, and to make myself feel better I said well the second one is always bigger.

Every mother and pregnancy is different. Last week after saying something to the dr. They said possible inducing. I don't know. We will see.

Good luck! You are almost there too!

Ask for a membrane sweep, if anything itll get you a lil further along. I had one and im now 40 weeks. I have tried sex and walking it doesnt help. The sweep doesnt really hurt just breath and it take like not even a min to do
