How to encourage labour? I am 39 weeks and 4 days pregnant.

Be patient :): Nothing guaranteed, but walking will help bring the baby down and might make contractions stronger. Sex is a tried and true way for many women due to prostaglandins in the semen than can induce labor. You can ask your obgyn to strip the membranes at your next visit. But the best advice is to stay patient and enjoy the last few days to week of growing that little miracle in your belly! i. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

I'm 39 weeks and 4 days pregnant. My stomach keeps getting real hard and I have pain in my lower back. I'm also leaking clear fluid. Labor?

I'm 39 weeks and 4 days pregnant. My stomach keeps getting real hard and  I have pain in my lower back. I'm also leaking clear fluid. Labor?

Very possibly: Labor requires a change in your cervix, which we can only tell with an exam. The likelihood of labor gets higher with more regular, longer, and harder contractions, but women can have contractions every 2-3 mintues without being in labor. You need an exam to see if your bag of waters is broken and see if your cervix is changing. Do that soon (like now). ...Read more

I am 39 weeks pregnant and  have been having liakage for a few days now and don't feel the baby move as often should I be concered?

Is having a bloody show a good sign that labour is on the way within a couple of days at 39 weeks pregnant?

Is having a bloody show a good sign that labour is on the way within a couple of days at 39 weeks pregnant?

Yes: Bloody show is a good sign that your cervix is softening and opening, but we cannot narrow it down to "a couple of days". Unfortunately, there's no way to predict how much longer it will be. But you are going in the right direction! ...Read more

I'm 39 weeks pregnant with only 4 days left. Can my baby still move after contractions stop?

I'm 39 weeks pregnant with only 4 days left. Can my baby still move after contractions stop?

Yes: In fact when a contraction stops it leaves more room for movement. I generally tell my term patients to do kick counts at home. While baby will sleep more at term, eating a meal should result in 6-10 movements the hour after you eat. If that's not happening alert your OB/midwife that day so an NST (non stress test) can be done. ...Read more

Crystal ball: the wisest doctor in the world needs a crystal ball to say when birth will happen, but your weeks + cervical status sound like it's very likely (esp. if you've had a baby before.) Good wishes. ...Read more

Call OB doc first: You are having symptoms, either discharge or itching, I presume, that makes you think you have a yeast infection, it would be best to call your OB doc and discuss your symptoms first, to be sure that that is what is going on.

39 weeks pregnant back pain last 4 days left middle back, doc said urine routine, test yest WBC 15-20 hpf, epithelal 5-10, mucus threads, ceftum250x2/d?

Agree: It sounds like you might have a bladder infection, so it was appropriate to treat. But did they check your cervix? Did they place you on the monitor to see if you are just contracting? If you pain is still there, and they did not do any of these things, then call your ob/gyn for further evaluation. ...Read more

39 weeks & 3 days pregnant my dr wants to induce labor.. R there any risk for me or baby?

There are the: Usual risks assocaited with childbirth. It is safer than anytime in history to deliver a baby. The decision to induce can be declined but i wouldnt wait too long. Consider that the baby is just getting bigger, on average about 1/2 pound per week. At 39 weeks the baby is not at increased risk from prematurity. Good luck, try not to worry too much. ...Read more

39 weeks pregnant.  Have not got any contractions im due in 5 days. Getting anxious. Any recommendations?

Be patient: Your due date is just the date that you turn 40 weeks. It is not the date that the baby will come out. Some people deliver before and some after. Find out from your doctor if your cervix is open. Discuss the option of an induction of labor after your due date. There are lots of options. ...Read more

This is my 1st pregnancy.I m 39 weeks 2 days.My dr.Has advise to induce pains through injection.Will inducing pain harm.I m very sensitive toward pain?

Got your way: So dr is ok w/induction, now what? In long run, will not harm baby, if that is who you are referring to. Labor pain often somewhat more pronounced w/induction due to medication expedited process. Epidural addresses this quite effectively and has no significant impact on baby. ...Read more
