Answer: Hi, Thank you for your enquiry. It can be difficult waiting for labour to begin when you are overdue. You carers are trying to do the best thing by you and your baby by waiting for natural labour to begin. Once you do go over a week overdue most carers like to keep a watch on you and your baby and sometimes you visit the hospital for fetal monitoring to check the health of the baby. Braxton Hicks are to be expected and they can become more uncomfortable as you get closer to labour. Try not to worry too much, make sure that you get plenty of rest and exercise regularly and labour will being very soon. Best wishes, Alex.
