Rachel0510 - May 1

I'm 38 wks 5 days, due on May 10th. I go back to the doctor on the 3rd for my 39 weeks appt. At 38 weeks the doctor said I still haven't dilated. I talked to my doctor about being induced on my due date so that my mother could be here (because she lives 9 hours away and can't take off work but for like a couple of days). My doctor said she didn't have a problem with that unless I'm still not dilated by the 10th because then I would be at high risk for a c-section. So my question is, what can I do to at least get dilated or progressed a little? I don't want to do the castor oil thing though, and everyone says to just walk forever, but what do you think?

walk, have s_x, stimulate your nipples for 15 minutes every hour or use a b___st pump, and PRAY!!!! Thats about all you can do... Best wishes.

Thanks sara b, I'm due tomorrow and from my last appt (39 weeks) I'm still not even dilated. I wound up drinking the castor oil last night because nothing else seems to work and I'm so physically tired from walking. It didn't do anything for me though, just made me go to the bathroom a few times. It wasn't that bad though. Maybe it would have worked if the baby was ready but oh well.
