38 weeks still nothing

Hello mummies. I’ve reached 38 weeks and still not showing any signs of labour. Is it normal? I don’t have any contractions or pelvic pain or any discharge whatsoever. I’m worried for my baby. Is there anything I can do? There’s movement but no signs of labour. My friend had the same thing, no signs of labour at all and when she gave birth, her baby didn’t make it somehow so I’m worried for mine.

I was 38 weeks when gynae said I’m 1cm dilated and prepare to check in anytime that week. But no sign of labour until my next visit. Gynae check again and said I’m about 3 cm dilated and decided to check me in immediately and broke my water bag to see if we can do vaginal delivery. Unfortunately, baby pooped in water bag hence we proceed with a cesarean. Throughout the process, I did not had any contraction or pain, only discomfort when gynae attempt to broke the water bag.

Dont stress yourself... stay positive, baby is def on the way! Just like you, i didnt have any signs of labour. The only signs was contractions, which i experience 1 day before my EDD. Eventually gave birth the day after at 40w+1d. I went for a long walk, did some minor excercises and kept active in general as it helps the whole labour process. Hang in there!

Don’t worry! I was only 0.5cm dilated and zero signs of labor on my due date. Then husband and I decided to had intercourse on our due date, after that my water bag broke during midnight and baby came out next day 😂
