You were all ready for your due date and the arrival of your little bundle of joy, but that day passed over a week ago. You can barely stand up, your bump is huge and you’re actually looking forward to the labour.
Yep, being past your due date is not what you had bargained for.
Here are 15 things only pregnant women past their due date know...
1) It’s totally acceptable to have a curry every night of the week
You no longer care about the fact that the majority of your screentime is spent scrolling through the Deliveroo app. You need to get this baby out now!
2) Caring what you look like is a thing of the past
You put effort into your maternity wardrobe at first, but now finding anything that looks good over your giant baby bump is too big a task to merit the effort of getting out of your pajamas.
3) Every scene from the latest series of Game of Thrones
Getting off the sofa is so much effort and you have been meaning to catch up on all your favourite series…
4) Sex is comical
You read that sex can bring on labour but navigating around your baby bump is a logistical mission – with added comedy value.
You’ve circled the day in your calendar, you’re counting down the days, but when it comes down to it – how can you be sure your pride and joy is going to arrive on that perfectly-planned day? The truth is, only five per cent of babies arrive on their due dates – and here’s why you shouldn’t rely on that happening...
Have you found your libido levels going through the roof? Or maybe all you want is constant cuddles. Some pregnant women want sex RIGHT NOW, while others would happily skip it for the next 40 weeks. Only one thing is consistent – your pregnancy sex drive is a roller-coaster that changes month by month
