You doctor can help: Sometimes waiting another week can help. If not, there are a variety of ways to get a cervix to ripen. Medicines (prostaglandin formulations) are most commonly inserted vaginally to help this process when it is time to be induced. Alternatively, Foley catheter or laminaria can be inserted into the cervix to mechanically dilate the cervix. You doc will decide which is best for your situation. ...Read more

Don't say a thing!: I strongly advise against this. Induced labors have significantly stronger risk of complications for your baby including needing to be admitted to the ICU ; increased risk you will need a c-section etc. Please put the health of your baby ahead of your feeling a few more days of discomfort! Your baby will induce labor when it's ready. See http://pregnancy.About. Com/od/induction/a/risksinduction. Htm. ...Read more

What does cervix soft, 1cm long, closed. -2 mean at 40 weeks pregnant? Can this change and I still go into labour naturally without being induced?
Not quite ready: 1 cm means the cervix is only open 1 cm - has to get to 10 cm to deliver the baby.

Natural labor is definitely a possibility ...Read more
