Im in a similar boat.  Im 39+3 and also waiting.  First baby arrived at 39, not sure this baby is taking her time.  Im trying to keep busy but its hard when the app reminds you that you only have 4 days to go. I believe outr babies will come when theyre ready and we better be fit and ready for labour haha since thats hard work.  Best of luck,  hope all goes well.

No need to stress mama! I was 42+2 and gave birth just fine naturally with no pain relievers. He is a healthy 4,750kg 59cm tall - maybe his size was the reason for the wait. But most likely long cycles are the ones to blame for the delay.

Listen to yourself, your body - it will signal if something is off normal..

Just remembered one very nice suggestion from our midwife - hot bath, candles, music, red wine, lavender essential oil drops (10 and before delude in a bit of honey) and making love! That every night recommended... and amazing for all 3 of you!
