hey Jacinta, my first was 9 days past his due date. I did not want to be induced, so I got my OB to "sweep" the membranes it can't hurt anything and will only progress the labor if baby is ready if not nothing will happen and you can redo the sweep and a day or two. Also SEX SEX SEX yeah I know not what you really wanna hear right now, that's what started this whole situation, but it does work, the hormones in semen are the same as the fake-o ones they use to induce you at the hospital and much more fun to "do" at home than hooked up to a machine at the hospital. You can also walk, walk as much as you can this will help drop baby. Also (this is the hardest) try to relax, your body knows what do to just let it do what it needs to do.

Good Luck

ps- there has yet to be a women pregnant forever it will be over soon
