Is it really possible to just not go into labor? - Page 2

Did you never hear that story of the woman whose baby literally didn't ever come out? She lives somewhere in the middle east and the baby was just never born. They found it in her uterus, completely calcified, about 30 or 40 years later.
I actually saw this documentary - she DID go into labour and there were complications and they wanted to give her a c-section...which she refused...and thats why her baby stayed in there, died and just calcified. ....point being, she did go into labour!

I think its probably very rare if a woman never actually goes into labour. Very very rare. So rare, you probably will never meet a person like that in real life. Probably more rare than winning the lottery or being struck my lightening! lol ....Though I wonder why that is for the very rare woman that this would ever happen to. (I mean - there is usually always a reason ...right?)

In my case, I did go in for a NST which was non-responsive. They did AROM, started pit. baby didn't handle it and I ended up with a C/S. That's the extremely condensed version

Really, I was extremely patient, I was utterly convinced that everyone goes into labor eventually, he wasn't going to stay in there forever etc.
But when he stopped moving, there were absolutely no signs of impending labor. I waited a full day before calling and going in for a NST.

Definitely, if you feel anything is wrong, it doesn't hurt to get checked out. But there shouldn't be a set deadline ahead of time. Everyone cooks babies differently

My MIL went 43-45 weeks with each of her four pregnancies.
