I've heard it can take up to two days. Maybe today or tonight.

I did see that some people's midwives said 24-48 hours. I do think it helped with dilation, but with no contractions I'm still hung out on a line. She didn't indicate whether or not she thought it would be effective but did say my cervix was very soft. I'm still a little hopeful but trying not to be too much so, ya know? Everyone is popping!

I can't believe you almost made it to your due date! I remember you saying earlier in the pregnancy that you had a feeling this baby wouldn't be born at 37 weeks like the others and it looks like your instincts were unfortunately right.

I logged onto Facebook today and there were a million birthdays so maybe there is something about the 20th and you will go into labour today!

Well tomorrow is the new moon phase, so maybe that will make a difference? I'm grasping at straws here :) Maybe it will happen. I just need some contractions to kick start. The midwives I've been seeing are so ultra adamant about the dilation being in conjunction with regular contractions. It's different from the last two pregnancies where I saw OBs.

I feel for you. I'm sorry nothing's happening. If it makes you feel any better my due date is 5 days away and I have nothing going on here. I'm very sure I'll make it to my 40 week appt on Tuesday and just for kicks I'll have them check me. Although considering I've had no signs, I won't be surprised if I'm still thick and closed. Hang in there! You're not alone!

LOL I think there are only about 3 of us left anymore -_-; I'm happy for everyone and I love having the time to read the birth stories though.
