Is your baby doing good?
when was the last time you visited doctor?

Well my mom told me I was born in 10th month plus 1 week. I was the first child. My siblings were born in 9 month.

Have sex.... Might sound odd and even if u dont feel like it do it anyway. That will send u right into labor

I agree. I literally went into labor right as my husband finished. My son was 4 days early. Sex works! Best advice I can give lol. Hoping this boy comes a few days early too. I'm due in 25 days :)
I have actually done all this lol, sex every night im constantly walking around everywhere but still nothing, my doctors said her head is engaged and could be any time but still nothing is happeneing. This is the longest ive been pregnant i had my last 2 babys 3week early.

I've heard respberry leaf tea helps. I'm currently trying it. My first two kids were born almost at 42 weeks and I'm trying to have this baby on time. I tried a bunch of stuff with my first two that never worked for me like drinking oil, exercise, sex, spicy food, sitting in a squat position for half an hour daily, getting on my hands and knees 10 minutes at a time but nothing helped! Just heard about the raspberry leaf tea this pregnancy and even if doesn't help me go into labor early, it had a lot of postpartum benefits! Look it up or ask your doctor about it! The tea strengthens your uterine muscles so your contractions are stronger which makes baby come faster and helps shrink your uterus back to prepregnancy size quicker along with reducing bleeding! I'm currently 36 weeks and 1cm dilated. I just started drinking the tea at 35 weeks so hoping to be at a 2 next week.

I did the raspberry leaf tea with my last pregnancy. It seriously helped so much. It was such a smoother, easier labor. In my last couple weeks now with baby number 4 and drinking 3 cups a day again to move him along and make labor and recovery easier and faster

Try peppermint oil on your wrists and ankles. It is proven to induce labor.

Aw the waiting game can be so excruciating! If you've done everything, and it sounds like you have done heaps of research and are doing all the 'right' things . At this point maybe take a day or two off trying to induce yourself.  At least to give your mind a break from the waiting and frustration. You still have plenty of time before the professionals start to try intervene... a lot can happen in a week! Try to enjoy your two other children or focus on yourself and the last days of being pregnant with some selfcare,meditation, a massage or acupuncture? Or maybe get childcare and do something relaxing with your partner and enjoy those last days before you become 5! Best wishes for a beautiful birth!!

I did all of these "old wives tales" with both of my children.nothing worked.   My daughter came on her Due date,  and my son a week early and I had to be induced. Fact is baby will come when baby will come. Drs no longer let you go PST 2 weeks post due date, so just breath get as much rest as possible because you'll need it. Take these last few days, to relax.
