I feel your pain!

And to everyone who feels the need to say " Your baby will come when it's ready" "Let nature blah blah blah".... You are annoying and not helping!!!!

You must have NEVER been 39 weeks pregnant, or have completely forgot what it's like!

Try Googling 'nipple stimulation for labor induction'. You should find instructions on how to do it. My friend has self-induced all five of her kids this way. I'm 37 weeks pregnant and feeling the same way as you. In another week or two I'm going to try it.

I would tell your doctor you are done and you ready to be induced. At 39 weeks pregnant the baby is just gaining weight. I had to do the same with my duaghter who we ended up taking 2 weeks early I couldnt walk anymore with out such sever pain I was mentally breaking down. I just told my doctor at my check up if this baby is fine to be born please take her or I dont know if I can mentally make it to the end and still take care of my 2 year old safely. He agreed with me since he says no one knows there body like themselves and the baby was safe at 38 weeks. She ended up weighing 6.7 and was completely healthy.

My baby was born one day before his due date. I was planning castor oil, etc. but never got to it. Relax! I know it's hard being 39 weeks pregnant, but you will not have time for you and your partner alone for at least the next year -- enjoy it while you can.

I have tried dozens of love spells and had no success. I was online and came across Dr okosodo Spells. I was having an issue with my partner we have both been separated for 2 months. I thought I would try one more time. I was told that my case would be done in so little time. I must admit I was a bit skeptical with my past experiencs and all. However 2 days later here I am back together with my partner and we are doing better then ever. If it was not for john Walton I do not know how I would be able to cope with life any longer. Thank you so much for all your help!this is the man email okosodotemple@gmail.com

i have many felling for this my ex because we have gotten 2 kids together and i will want us to come back again. but all way i tried for us to come back all went in vain. i was confused and sad because i needed him back into my life, so i decided to contact priest azula, i never believe in spell casting i just decide to make an effort and see if something can come out of it. i contacted them and they told me that they needed to cast return back of love to him, they did the spell and after 2 week my ex called that he still love me and wanted us to be together again,what surprise me most was that he was married to another woman, and after the spell casting he divorce the woman for me that same week. it was the spell i cast on him that brought him back again. we later got married again and now the kids are happy that their father is back to their mother again, i really thank this priest azula for bringing back my ex husband to me. i want you my fellow women who want back their divorce husband to contact priest azula for his return, do not lose hope you can make this great step as i did then your ex husband will come back to you. and also your ex wife too okay,

36 weeks is not full term. As frustrating as it is try to be patient a little longer. By textbook it might be "good enough" but term is really closer to 37-40 weeks. Due dates can be a little off sometimes, they are not 100% accurate. During the last few weeks your babies lungs are still developing and if your baby is not ready they are just not ready. Soon enough you will have a newborn so try to just relax and enjoy it while you can.

I had my membrane stripped and YES it did hurt. I still had to have patosin (sp?) to get him out!

My OB suggested that I walk a lot and stay as active as I can and to have lots of sex. LOL. It seemed to work the last time I was pregnant coz I ended up being one week early (I went into labor 5 days after I was given that advice) and I didn't do the long walks coz it was just too exhausting already. Hope that helps.

Tara, I think you are confusing having your membranes stripped with breaking your bag of water. Once you have them stripped there is no time limit at all to go into labor. It's actually not even a guarantee that you will. Also you can have them stripped multiple times during pregnancy. As well as there is not an increase of possible infection what so ever. Check out this link: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/7034...

with my first I was waiting till the 41 week
second already came faster - I walked a lot - walk all day as much as you can and drink water all the time.
Moving around is the best to get things going (-:

Your baby will come when good and ready! I tired everything - raspberry leaf tea, walking, sex, curry, alcohol and still went to 42 weeks. I had to be induced and still took 2 days to go into labour!! Good luck. You will soon have your precious baby in your arms. Enjoy this quiet time while you can and get as much rest as you can. xxx

It should not hurt to have your membranes stripped, however it is a slippery slope. Once you get your membranes stripped, you only have 24 hours to have the baby, or worries about infection increase dramatically. You will end up on pitocin with all its accompanying hazards very quickly if your labor does not move fast enough. Think carefully about this one!

Ask your doctor to strip or sweep your membranes. It's completely harmless to you and the baby. It is a little painful I hear, but it can bring on labor. I am in the same boat as you 39 weeks pregnant with my second and I tell ya I am over it. I have my doc appt. tomorrow morning and I am having my membranes stripped so hopefully it works!

I used Primrose Oil. You can get it at most health food stores. Try taking one three time a day. Then two three times a day. I got to 5 three times a day and went into labor. It is made to help women with PMS, but helps to get things going. I don't think that most Dr.'s will recommend it, but then again they don't usually recommend cater oil either. It is something that a midwife would recommend. Good luck!

Also, think really hard before you get induced. C-section rates go way up for mothers who get induced, and the experience is supposed to be very unpleasant.

have you looked into accupuncture? I bounced on one of those big exercise balls for 30-40mins everyday for the last couple of weeks, raspberry leaf tea, curries, sex.... walking

God luck

There are no medals for this! You have experienced all you will experience in your pregnancy - get induced! Bring your little bundle into the world and remember to push, push, push! Its all worth it in the end!

Raspberry tea did not help me, sex did not help me.. Hate to say it, but when he/she is ready to come.. They will come. I had to be induced being almost 2 weeks overdue.

Sex might be your best bet. You could always set an induction date and than have sex.. My daughter came a week early induction date set (dr apt on Wednesday- induction for her due date which was a week from that Friday) my husband and i had sex on Thursday and she came on Friday.

As Shevaughne said. My midwife also said having sex doggy style not to mention. It is what I did and 30 min later contractions started then we did it again cause I didn't want to go into false labor I wanted to make sure it worked. I was 41 weeks.

OK this may gross you out a little but it came to me from a midwife..... have sex, the semen brings on labour. or so she said.
My opinion is let the little one decide when to come, cause thenis when the time is right.

I was completely sick of being pregnant. The baby was moving all over the place and wouldn't stay head down. I begged my OB to do something and he wouldn't cause I was only 38 weeks pregnant...another week and my water broke. I didn't get a contraction for 18 hours after that, painful anyway, and then I was put on the iv to get things going. I had HORRIBLE back labor and the epidural was useless after about 6 hours. After 35 hours total, my placenta started coming out first, and the baby's heart rate was erratic, so I ended up getting an emergency c-section....I was grateful for the c-section after having back labor for over 12 hours...

I was the same way, i tried everything and then finally i talked to my doctor and he induced me everything went great. I have had three inductions and one nature births and the inductions were no different from the nature i didn't have pain meds and they all came with in 3 hours of getting started.

Well I have to agree with all the other moms the lil one will come when it wants to. My Dr induced me 2 days b4 my due date because I could no longer walk without pain. I was physically and mentally broken down. So after 15 hours of labor we had our boy 1 month ago today. Talk to your Dr maybe he can do the same thing.

[deleted account]

Please do not use castor oil..it can conflict with medication used incase you need an emergency c section. The leaf tea made me so ill after using it twice i gave that up...apparently sex..but i wasn't feeling so sexy to attempt that...walking didn't help me, all i can say is good luck..and hope and pray you don't end up like me...i was a full 42 weeks and had to get induced all the way.
Oh and if this is your first just remember...it all gets better after the first 6 weeks

I agree with Leslie... I actually enjoyed being pregnant. Except for the sciatic nerve. omg it hurt so much. Lol. The way I limped people probably thought I'd been beaten up or something. But pharmacological induction is not a good idea. Pitocin [what they normally use] causes stronger-than-normal contractions, and the epidural to relieve your pain can slow your labor and cause you to be diagnosed with "failure to progress." Your body knows what's best, and you'll go into labor when it's ready. But red raspberry leaf tea, walking, sex [especially orgasm - I know it's personal, but it releases a hormone called oxytocin which starts labor contractions - Pitocin is the artificial form], they all help. Good luck! :D

[deleted account]

Ye I was like you, sick of being pregnant. But I tried everything, sex, spicy foods, walking, swimming, teas. Nothing worked. Your baby will come out when they are good and ready.

Drinking red raspberry leaf tea could help, and either way it will be benificial to you when you go into labour. Acupressure could also help. I enjoyed walking to speed up my labour. It is a bad idea to go to the hospital for an induction, no matter how far along you get, because it sets off a whole chain reaction of interventions. Your baby won't stay in there forever. Try to relax and do the stuff you won't have time for once baby comes.

[deleted account]

At the end of the day your baby will come when he or she is ready. Some other things you could try are taking a long walk, sex, eating lots of fresh pineapple (not tinned), and also drinking raspberry leaf tea. I went 2 days overdue with my son and sex did the trick for me lol!
