Answer: Hi, You are at an increased chance of having your baby late again. Try not to get too impatient as your workload will increase after birth. I know that it can be very uncomfortable at times but the baby is still in the best place for now. To prepare for the birth regular exercise and a healthy diet will help as will some regular rest time in the day. Best wishes, Alex
