Honestly, at not even 39 weeks, I think I'd just try to be patient and wait it out. Babies come when they are ready and unless there's a pressing medical reason to do so, I think we just drive ourselves crazy trying to rush things.

I agree. And most of the natural methods really only tip you over the edge if your body and baby are ready to go anyway. Relax and enjoy doing things you won't be able to do with a newborn :-) Sleep-in, have afternoon sleeps whenever you want to, read a whole book in one sitting. It's hard. It you wont be pregnant for much longer. Hang in there.

Don't get swept up in this, mama...your baby will come, what your doctor wants is not necessarily best for your baby. Your little one needs to get in the best position, your body needs to get ready chemically....believe me, you want to wait until your body triggers labor.

 

What you don't want, is to try really really hard to make labor come on and then have "something" start to happen...go into the hospital not really in *actual* labor with a doctor who has already told you that HE really wants your baby born this weekend.....that's a recipe for intervention. Doc: "I want to give you some pitocin to get things ramped up"  ...... You: "Well, we're already here....."

 

I know how hard it is not to get wrapped up in the flurry of possibility and really WANTING your baby to come...but your baby IS going to come. I know your doc is out of town next weekend...but who you are scheduled to see is not in any way as important as your bodies schedule for this pregnancy/birth. 

Hang in there! Statistically speaking...your baby probably doesn't want to come until after you doc is BACK in town from his trip!! Do like the PP said...enjoy your last days of being able to rest and do what you want. All this stress and flurry over trying to make labor come is going to wear you out...TIRED is NOT something you want to be when you are actually in labor. GL mama.

You can try using a breast pump - but don't over do it or you may have super sensitive nipples and have trouble breastfeeding - but as stated above, your baby is likely just not done baking...you can tell your doctor to wait another couple of weeks if you're only 39 weeks along.  I know the waiting is very hard at this point so go on lots of walks, go out with friends and try to enjoy rather than worry!  It will all work out!
