No End In Sight I Need Reassurance

mamagoose - February 6

I'm 41 weeks, and I got checked today... the baby is still somewhat high up, there is no dilation, no effacement, I've had no contractions, absolutely no signs of labour at all. I had a no-stress test, and the baby is still thriving. They're certain about my due date, which was Jan 31. Have any of you ever been in the 41st week with no signs of labour, and then actually went into labour on your own? I really wanted to go into labour on my own rather than be induced, but it just doesn't look like it's going to happen...

I was 41 weeks & 3days when i had my daughter! No dialation, contractions, nothing! I was scheduled to be induced the following day but i took matters into my own hands.....i took some castor oil the night before, drank some hot tea, & had s_x. I went into labor a couple hours later. Could just be a coincidence!

Thanks, I'm glad to hear its at least possible! I've got 3 days counting today before they induce me, and I'm reaaallllly hoping I can go naturally before then.

mamagoose I was wondering if you were still waiting. If you do end up getting induced w/ cervidil it's not too terribly bad. Just make sure you get your epidural when you are in pain instead of waiting like I did. But the pain is all worth it.... Hope you go naturally though!
