Remember, that anything before 38 weeks is preterm labor, and the baby may not be ready! Early birth can mean immature lungs, jaundice, and other problems. It is better to be patient, and let your body go into labor on its own. If there is something wrong, or some reason that the doctor feels labor should be induced, (s)he will let you know, and schedule an appointment. It will then be done in a controlled environment, with medications that are known to work. This will reduce the chances of harm coming to you, or your baby.
