Answer: Hi, It is normal for pregnancy to go at least to term - 40 weeks and many women will give birth in the 41st week. Try not to be too concerned and keep fit by taking regular long walks and even swimming as this helps relieve some of the heaviness that you can feel. It will happen soon enough. Best wishes, Alex
