40 weeks pregnant and keep peeing

You'll notice your little one is still curled into the fetal position (though his or her arms and legs may flail a bit).
Although you won't feel your cervix opening or thinning out, it is probably happening this week. If your baby has dropped this week, the uncomfortable feeling in your pelvis may be traced to a certain someone's little head bumping up against your hips and bladder. While no one really knows what causes those painful spasms in your legs, it's a good bet that carrying around all that pregnancy weight (especially this week!) is a pain in the legs. The two real signs of labor are when your waters break and you have progressing contractions.
At 40 weeks once your baby has dropped into position you will have a feeling of heaviness and stress in the pelvic region.
In the final weeks of your pregnancy your enlarged uterus pushes the walls of your abdomen resulting in a popped out belly button. Your doctor or midwife would have asked you to track your baby’s movements and to call them if you find anything unusual. If you are tired of being pregnant and want to induce labor, you can speak to your doctor about the risks involved and if it’s okay to go ahead.

That major mystery solved once and for all, you'll also notice that baby (besides being cute as can be — and yours!) is wearing a little leftover travel dust consisting of blood, vernix, lanugo and amniotic fluid.

By now you've no doubt lost a night or two's sleep over when and where it will happen — because you've heard (or seen on TV) one or two horror stories about an inconvenient (no, make that humiliating) time and place (like in the middle of a busy sidewalk at lunch hour or at a jam-packed mall on a Saturday morning). Unless your baby is imminent danger, it's not typically considered until you are two weeks past due.
These tricks may help induce labor naturally (ask your health care provider first!): walking, sex, acupuncture and acupressure.
Even if you only have days left to go, invest in a pregnancy body pillow if you haven't already.
Dilation is measured in centimeters and effacement in percentages; after an internal exam, your practitioner will probably give you the measurements. Maybe you've been hit by the nesting instinct or maybe you just have an urge to slump in front of the TV and veg out. You will now have more frequent and severe Braxton Hicks contractions that prepare you for labor.
They may even recommend a Cardiotocograph (CTG) to record your baby’s heartbeat and measure your uterus activity.
Your baby probably weighs anywhere from six to nine pounds and measures between 19 and 22 inches (though tons of perfectly healthy babies are born smaller or bigger).
And because it's the only position he or she has really known, it's a comforting one to be in. About half of all pregnancies last longer than 40 weeks and it's anyone's guess when yours might end (though your practitioner will probably not let it go longer than 42 weeks, thankfully).

If you notice fluid that looks yellowish and smells of ammonia, you're probably leaking urine. The downside is there will be more pressure on your bladder and you will have the urge to pee frequently.
You (or actually the placenta) are still providing the antibodies he'll need to fight off infections for the first six months of his life, but if you plan on breastfeeding your milk will give him more antibodies to boost his immune system (especially colostrum, a thin, yellowish precursor to breast milk that's super-rich in antibodies and feeds your baby for the first few days postpartum).
Just be sure to say hello to your new arrival, since your baby will very likely recognize the sound of your voice and your partner's.
First, because fewer than 15 percent of women experience a rupture of the membranes before labor begins and, second, because if your water does break in public, it's less likely to come as a torrential tidal wave and more likely to come as a slow leak, a trickle or a small gush.
Mother Nature knows what she's doing (for the most part) and the majority of newborns are pretty well matched to the size of their mothers (if you're small-boned, chances are you're not carrying sumo baby in there — unless, of course, you've eaten like a sumo wrestler during pregnancy). And your vagina knows what to do, too — it stretches considerably during childbirth and then, miraculously, it tightens up again.
If your water breaks and the fluid is green or brown, be sure to call your practitioner right away.
