You are ready for the baby to arrive. But your baby isn’t yet ready to come out. Find out what you can do to help things along.
If you are feeling a little impatient, try doing some very gentle exercise like walking. In your 41st week, your doctor will usually discuss inducing you and plan this in for week 42, but this can vary.
Remember once they’ve induced labour, things might progress pretty quickly so be prepared! You’ll still experience all of the same stages of labour, but it could be a little quicker. On the other hand, it can sometimes take a couple of days to get things moving, so don’t panic if nothing happens immediately!
