I am pregnant for first time and my delivery date is 23/05/2014, given by my doctor but I want to do so before 20/05/2014 and today is 19/05/2014... Please help its urgent
If the babies head is still upwards rather than downward and engaged then natural birth is more than a week away. The baby still is not properly cooked yet. If it has to be delivered, as you say, in the next 18 hours; unless you have booked a hospital bed and theatre time for a Caesarian section you are totally out of luck.
Artificially inducing labor now would endanger the life of both you and the baby as it would have to be turned in the womb manually so as to allow head first delivery. Feet first and you risk yourself and the baby. You won't believe the vaginal tearing that can ensue from these deliveries. Try to think of 30 to 80 stitches right there... If you live you will be scared to look at a toilet for weeks. :(
Patience, its best not to try to have the baby early and just wait until its ready to be born. It isn't urgent, this generation wants everything when they want it. Things happen in babies time not yours, and you best get used to that because its going to rule your life with the child.
