there really is nothing you can do.. I remember being in your exact situation a few wks ago..except with my first lol. try s_x, trhe prostglandins in s____n will help soften your cervix, also raspberry leaf tea is a uterine tonic and will help prepare your uterus a bit better. These are both safe and natural. uhmm walking.. I heard housework and stuff like vac_ming actually works for some ppl.I think you may need to limit the activities in your day so you are more rested for labour. keep in mind you are pregnant and need to slow down if possible. If you are going on maternity leave id look into taking it now and go have some time to yourself if possible. Ask your doctor for an induction if you are really that uncomfortable and misreable.. good luck :)

You are exhausted and probably about ready to go into labor. I would see the doctor to make sure that you are safe. You should really consider going on early leave and letting some of the housework go. Let some of your older children help out as much as they can (if they are old enough). And make yourself get some rest, you will need it for labor!
