Your body is trying to tell you that baby is not ready to be born. Be patient. It will happen, no one stays pregnant forever.

I know its frustrating, but you want the best for both baby and yourself, don't you?

You just have to be patient and know baby will come when baby is ready. If you "try" to rush it you only put yourself and your baby at risk. Baby will come soon enough be patient and wait until baby is ready so you don't risk baby's life or yours.

You have waited 9 months to see your baby another week or two is not going to kill you. But trying to rush your body into labor may.
