The Ultimate Cheat Sheet On Ways To Enjoy Final Month Of Pregnancy

Eviction Notice Coming Soon

I remember when I got down to the last 30 days with all three of my children. I was ready to have my baby even though I was scared of labor and delivery. My last pregnancy was the worst, I was miserable the last two months because I had horrible pain in my SPD joint. I couldn’t hardly walk and it hurt so bad to roll over in bed. But I endured the pain and waited until my baby was ready to come. So if you are in the last 30 days of pregnancy I promise that it will seem like the days are dragging by so slowly.  In fact, I know at this point many mom’s are very miserable and ready to me their baby.  The good news is that you will have your baby in the next few weeks.  Don’t worry the doctors will not allow you to go 2 weeks past your due date.  So  do your best and try to enjoy the last few weeks of pregnancy because once your baby is here you will miss those tiny kicks, jabs, and late night trips to the bathroom to pee.   Disclosure:  This post is for informational purposes only.  Please talk to your doctor before trying to self induce.

Trying to Induce Labor

Many mothers are so tired of being pregnant that they will attempt anything to try to jump start their labor.  However, no matter what you do or take chances are you will not go into active labor until your body is ready.  I attempted trying to jump start my labor during my last pregnancy and the only thing it did was give me was two false labor runs to the hospital and my baby decided to turn breech.  Many women try these things to induce labor:

  • nipple stimulation
  • pineapple
  • sexual intercourse
  • eating spicy food
  • bouncing on an exercise ball
  • lots of walking
  • evening primrose oil
  • raspberry leaf tea
  • acupuncture
  • castor oil

    With my first pregnancy I was so happy being pregnant I didn’t want it to end! The second time around I had a scheduled C-section. So I never really tried to make myself go into labor, although I might have the second time. I couldn’t move, sleep, or even breathe!

      Each subsequent pregnancy does seem harder.

    I said, “Oh yes!” before I even read your post. What do you think about women whose births are
    “scheduled” these days. I don’t like that at all. It just isn’t natural.

      I get “scheduled” labors for medical circumstances but not for convenience.

    Catch up on sleep is the best advice EVER! And go to the movies – that’s one thing I miss about not having kids in tow.

      Yes, you will miss the sleep, especially, if you have multiples or more.

    My first baby was born right on her due date, and then the four after that were all late, late, LATE. Every day past your due date feels like a week. So figuring out a way to pass the time is a great idea. After the first one, of course, taking care of the older kids was my hobby. 😉

      Both of my boys were born late, my oldest was born a few days early.

    Great post. I am one of those who totally wants it to end by the end of my pregnancy. My 2nd was scheduled, but with my first, I ate spicy food, went walking, made hubby have sex with me… all in one day. Something must have worked because I went into labor that night 🙂
    I think catching up on sleep is a great tip. One thing I’m glad I did before my 2nd was born was cook and freeze enough meals for a couple weeks. I was able to recover and not have to worry about cooking.

    Have a great week!
