Need some help: There are several items. Start with your partners sperm count, a visit to an OB for an exam (look for structural hindrances) and hormone levels.

Slow motility and over 35 woman wants to get pregnant via help from fertility doc vs. Trying on own. What would top 3 things you would do to help?

Also, as you begin to approach your due date, your anxiety may increase especially if this is a first baby.

36w and 4d pregnant. Dilated to a 1 1/2 almost 2 and dr tried to strip my membranes. How long will it be before things get to moving along?

No set time: But am surprised as long as you and baby are ok that doc would strip the membranes before 37 weeks as sometimes you can go into labor in a day or 2 or sometimes it does not work at all to put u in labor, if your baby is not too large, safest time to deliver for the baby is 39-40 weeks and 38 weeks better than now, at 36 wks and 4 days the lungs may not be all the way mature. ...Read more
