it totally makes sense. Just remember that each birth is sooo different and there is NO possible way you can stay pregnant WILL go into labor!

My cousin has 2 kids - first one was a planned bradley natural birth turned c-section. She got induced at 40w for "big baby", walked around for about an hour, couldn't take the pit, got the epi at 2cm, used the breastpump to help augment labor..stalled at 3cm for 14 hours, got diagnosed as failure to progress because of said "big baby" had a c-section with a very healthy 7lb2oz little boy. her body clearly wasn't ready to be in labor.

2nd birth - planned c-section. Milissa went into labor 3 days before planned c-section, got to the hospital after "suspecting" she was in labor (39w), found out she was dilated 7cm and her bag was bulging. Decided to try for a vbac...had her bag popped, went to 10cm in 2-3 contractions, and had baby in less than 4 hours of suspecting she was in labor.
