  • Thank you for Lauren saying in video she felt a bit down and wondering if doing something wrong. I felt like that this at the end of this week too. 41 weeks today and hoping a bath, walk and date night at home may help x

  • About to go to bed on the eve of 41 + 2. My home birth can only happen if I go into labor before 42 weeks and I’m trying not to stress. This was such a lovely video to find!

  • Tomorrow is my due date… Still no signz of labour…. Im not in a good mood n very scared as its my 1st baby…. She z very lazy… Dnt want to come out ��

  • Currently 41 weeks 2 days…planned induction in 3 days..if he doesn’t come on his own…ive come to terms with it now..last week I was going mad…i couldn’t do a sweep or dilation checks due to group B strep �� but I’m just so ready so I’m on countdown mode!!!!

  • The longest week of my life. I’m watching this while expecting contractions every 10 minutes. Here’s hoping things progress before I have to be induced.

  • Not quite to 41 weeks (I’m currently 40 weeks 5 days) but I am being induced tonight.:(
    I’m pretty stressed and nervous about it. This was definitely not part of my plan, as I was hoping for a completely unmedicated birth.
    I’m so afraid that I won’t be able to take the pain without meds.
    Wish me luck!

  • I’ll be 41 weeks tomorrow I have my appointment today and I just hope they give me a date! I’m so tired of being pregnant and so excited to meet our princess!! I really appreciate you guys making this video because it really is disheartening to feel like your body isn’t doing what it should be…

  • Thank you for this video. There really isn’t a lot for moms who go past 40 weeks. I’ve had three little ones at 42 weeks. I’m on baby number 4 I assume I will go past my due date…again.

  • 42 weeks today. Hospital too full to do too much:( second pessary given and if that doesn’t work there’s a 2 day waiting list for waters breaking �� very emotional and my husband can’t stay over night with me

  • When I was pregnant I was extremely nauseous and uncomfortable all the time from being sick, but then one of my friends told me about this wristband that would stop me from being sick instantly. So I went online bought one for like $12 and tried it, and it worked so amazingly!! It has a little knub on it that hits a pressure point on your wrist to stop nausea. It also smells like peppermint which helps with the nausea. I’m not usually one to go and promote products but this wristband really did help me. Its call NoMo Nausea and it works so well! If you get morning sickness or are nausea all the time you must try!!

  • Hi Charlotte, I am 41 weeks and 2 days today. Last night I woke up 6 times to go to the toilet:( Hope she will arrive soon as I am so tired of waiting xxx

  • Well done Charlotte, I’ve been watching you for quite a while now and although it might seem weird I want to say I’m proud of you. I am currently 32 weeks pregnant with my second baby but my first was born at 42+3, weighing 9lb 4oz and measuring 56cm. It’s so true that baby was amazingly alert, even holding his own head up the morning after he was born.

    To any mum’s who are 42 weeks pregnant and watching this video, and probably waiting to be induced: take everything as it comes. I had a very positive induction experience (although it was quite long!) and I’d even go as far as to say I wouldn’t mind going to 42 weeks and being induced again. Good luck xx

  • Thank you for your story and those wonderful and encouraging words. Currently on my 40th wks + 1 day. Still waiting for the baby to drop as per my OB, the baby still has a lot of room to swim that’s why she’s not yet dropping. Everyone is so excited to see her and I felt pressured everytime they ask me if I already gave birth. I decided not to respond and wait patiently until she’s ready. ♥️

  • Thank you for this video! I initially thought this baby would arrive sooner and now 41 weeks and still no baby! Definitely a grumpy mumma, especially when the growth scan shows this bub is already big! But thank you for your video, I feel more supported and looking to be induced on thursday if nothing happens!

  • My daughter Lola was born at exactly 42 weeks weighing exactly 8lbs! So the weight is accurate on this video �� these videos will be so helpful for people, I wish I could have watched them! Good job Charlotte x
