Tiredness defines mommy at 40 weeks of gestation !! Exhaustion and reaching the limit are evident since the size of the belly is very large and it is not possible to sleep well, walk properly or even do tasks that were so simple before.

But there is nothing to do but wait for the body to react and show that the time has come, and it is also almost time and can happen at any time.
If at 40 weeks of pregnancy contractions are still coming sporadically, you can start hiking. The walk helps to accelerate labor and the pregnant woman can walk around 1 hour a day, paying attention to the time when the sun is not so intense. It is worth remembering that a pregnancy can reach up to 42 weeks, but it is quite common if by 41 there is no progress the doctor will induce labor or schedule a cesarean.
If you have no medical recommendation asking you not to have sex, try to date a lot. The sexual act helps a lot in the acceleration of the labor also since during the intercourse substances are released that help in the acceleration of the contractions and the dilation of the cervix. If you still hold out, date until the last moment!
The phone keeps ringing and the messages on the phone are constant, wanting to know if you haven’t been born yet! This kind of thing takes away the peace of the pregnant woman and the closest family members who, in addition to having to deal with their own anxiety, have to put up with the anxiety of others and the demands. If you can walk away and save yourself from this kind of questioning, run away! All you need now at 40 weeks of gestation is to keep calm and peace to have a peaceful birth and enjoy your baby’s arrival.
h week begins
My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
