Please Help Labor Question

I am 39.5 weeks and having my first-it's a BOY! Doctor says I am still carrying kinda high, I am not effaced or dialated at all. I also have to go in this friday for another U/S to check the localization of the placenta. Doc says it's a little low. My question is, how long do I have to wait to be induced and can the baby drop and cervix dialate all at once very quickly? Because I dont even have Braxton Hicks contractions, I used to get them but havent gotten any in 2 or 3 weeks. I am just so nervous and cannot wait to hold him, I feel like I will be pregnant forever, because I have NO signs of labor!!! Sorry so long, thanks for listening though!

Don't worry I was the exact same way. I dilated though. My doctor just recently induced, on Thursday March 8 and I had him on Friday morning. I thought that I was going to be pregnant forever but now that I think about it and I have my little baby here it really wasn't that long. My doctor induced me a week early. Maybe you should talk to your doctor and ask him/her how long they wait to induce. I think that it mainly depends on how much the baby is weighing and all that.

There is a presure point on the inside of your leg right above your foot .. you will be able to feel it when you push on it .. anyway i wasnt going into labor with my son and i had read that by pushing that presure point it could send you into labor, so i tried it and i was so shocked but it worked .. i pushed on the presure point off and on for a few hours... it might have just been a fluke but maybe not .. it might be worth a try ... cant really hurt... well i dont think it can, maybe just incase call your DR. and and ask. But Dont worry you wont be pregnant forever, though it does feel that way at times...
