What causes a baby to be overdue?
The reason why the baby is overdue is usually not known. Sometimes it is because of a genetic predisposition (hereditary). Women who have already had a baby that came much later than their due date are more likely to have an overdue baby in future pregnancies. Being born after the 40th week only rarely harms the child.
Does baby move a lot before labor?
Your baby moves less: Women often notice that their baby is less active the day before labor begins. No one is sure why. It may be that the baby is saving up energy for the birth. If you feel less movement, call your doctor or midwife, as sometimes decreased movement can mean that the baby is in trouble.

Do contractions feel like you need to poop?
During the pushing stage, you will most often feel a strong expulsion sensation with (and sometimes between) contractions, a feeling very much like having to poop. It’s not uncommon for contractions to slow down quite a bit during this time, allowing rest in between.
Are most babies born in the morning or at night?
The highest percentages of births occurred during the morning and midday hours. Births on Saturday and Sunday were more likely to occur in the late evening and early morning hours than births Monday through Friday.
What time of day are you more likely to go into labor?

How accurate is your due date?
It’s the same in most developed countries. But data from the Perinatal Institute, a non-profit organisation, shows that an estimated date of delivery is rarely accurate – in fact, a baby is born on its predicted due date just 4% of the time.
What do the first contractions feel like?
Labor contractions usually cause discomfort or a dull ache in your back and lower abdomen, along with pressure in the pelvis. Contractions move in a wave-like motion from the top of the uterus to the bottom. Some women describe contractions as strong menstrual cramps.
