Ok so went back to the hospital lastnight and then this morning they sent me back home because the results for the Amnio came back undecided so the dr does not want to induce this week after all with no real results. I asked him if he is still worried about the IUGR thing and he said no.

He told me that he wanted me to come home for this week and hope and pray that my water breaks on it's own. He does not want to break them himself because I am only 36 weeks and 4 days. BUT that he want's my water to break on it's own so now I am trying to figure out how I can do that. I know sex is out of the question because a) hubby is home and I am at mom's cause it is closer to the hospital and b) Dr is worried it will give me and baby an infection so that is out. I have been walking non stop which is bring baby down (he is down really low from the feeling on the outside) but dr will not check for dilation because I am still leaking off and on and he does not want to take the chance of breaking the membranes himself.

So I need some serious ideas on how to get the ball rolling in the next few days. Dr really stressed that he hopes that my water breaks by next monday. So any idea's???????

Thank you to Mistyx6 for my siggy!

nothing will actually break water, sorry

I'd just try to get labor going, nipple stim, and walking.

was your doc willing to do a cervical sweep/membrane sweep?

Dance around like a fool! Terra posted a funny video on facebook a few days ago titled something like "how to induce labor in 8 hours". It was this girl hip hop dancing to early 90's music while her husband videotaped her. She apparently went into labor afterwards! I don't have the link, but I'm sure it would come up on youtube if you searched for it! Good luck! "Don't just stand there, bust a move!"
