About 2 weeks. And I totally agree with you about the sex and walking lol. I'm just
Iike ehhh no get away! Lol only time I left my house this week was to go to my doctors appt on Wednesday. My MW told me that if I don't show any more signs of progression or even enough progress that they are going to talk to me about inducing me! :/ lol I could possibly have a c-section too because of how short I amand depends on how big Landon is.

And at this point who wants to have sex or walk anyway right lol. I havent even left my house all week ive been wanting to at least try the primrose because if not I have to let my dr perform a csection. I guess these kidsll come when they feel like it. How long have you had the back pains?

Yes this is my first. I've experienced contractions with taking them vaginally and severe back pain, but that hasn't gone away Ina long time. I don't have anyone around to have sex with so that's not an option, and walking, ehhh. Lol but I do it when I can! My friend did caster oil but I'm afraid it will give me the runs! Lol

I actually was wondering the same thing. Im due Saturday. I heard castor oil too but thats a laxative and could just give u a bad case of the runs. Ive heard lots of walking and sex can help. The walking will help the baby move down more and theres something im the semen that helps the cervix ripen as well. But ive heard they're all wives tales and baby will come when its ready. Is this ur first? Im on my second
