Jennifer - December 9

Hello, I am 37 weeks today and I really want our little girl here for Christmas. I was wondering if anyone has any tips on how to help progress this to happen. I am not dialted or anything as of yet. Any safe advice!

Jennifer, I'm 37 weeks today too, and my dh & I really want our little guy here for x-mas as well.. I've heard lots of s_x, walking, and spicy food can speed up the process. I went in for my check up a few days ago and really nothing is happening yet??? My cervix is starting to soften but no dialtion. If there are any tips I would def like to know......hehehehe. Jennifer, when is your edd? Mine is Dec. 30th.

Mine is Dec 30th too! We are having a girl. Spicy foods!!! Great! I have the worst heartburn. I don't get it until about 2:00 in the morning and I have to sit up fro about two hours after taking Mylanta for it to go away. The worst part about it is that I have to be at work at 9:00 M-F. Have you thought of a name? We have Caitlyn Marie!

Hi Jennifer and Dani. I'm 37 wks also, and my DD is 12/29! We are also hoping our little boy (Aydan), will get here before Christmas! What a wonderful present huh?? I'm not making any progress either....just had an appt. yesterday. I also had an u/s yesterday, and he weighs 6 lbs. 7 oz. already! And there is nothing wrong with hoping they will get here early....we are considered full term after all......Good luck!

I definately feel all of your pain - my DD is Dec 30 as well and I would *love* to have my little guy here for Christmas. I don't know how everything is going with physically as I have yet to have an internal check. Let me know if any of you find something that works, I'm sure we're all pretty d__n close to batty by now.

I wonder how spicy foods are supposed to jumpstart labor?? I have craved extremely spicy stuff my entire pregnancy...the heartburn has been horrific, but I still eat it. I have been cleaning alot around the house..walking...up and down steps, but nothings happening. Even my BH contractions went away. After DH and I have s_x, I have lots of cramping, but thats all. I don't know what we can do. I'm not up for trying things like castor oil either...ugh! LOL

Well I feel better knowing that I am not the only one not making any progress yet. Everyone kept telling me that I would be early and I guess I just got my hopes up to much. I thing she is going to come after Christmas and after New Years. People tell me to walk a lot! It is so hard to stay on my feet for a long time. I guess they will all come when they are good and ready!

Here is a helpful link.

Well, that links not working. Go to, click on pregnancy, and click on "natural ways to induce labor" under pregnancy articles.:0)

I have also heard that doing enemas can bring on labour.
