Patience: Let mother nature do her work. Your body and your baby know when it is the right time to go into labor. There are more and more studies every day about more problems in 'early term babies' - those born from 37-39 weeks. You are not even due yet. I know you are very uncomfortable and want to meet your new baby, but the baby likes it where he or she is right now, so let them stay where they are!
