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
