I passed my due date. Im 41 weeks pregnant and I have pain in my lower back and my ass and legs . Like cramp . Is this a sign of labor?

Perhaps - go to L&D!: After three days past your due date (provided an early ultrasound confirmed its accuracy) the risk for the fetus to die is greater in utero than in the nursery, so you do not want to be pregnant much longer. I would recommend going to your l&d of choice and requesting evaluation with the plan of delivery! best of luck! ...Read more

I'm 41 weeks pregnant and my baby slightly back to back, will this make labour difficult?

Yes, but talk to OB : Talk to your OB md about the baby's position and the labor plans.(induction or natural). At 41 weeks, a birthing plan is probably available via your OB md to "jump start" your process or a c/s may be contemplated. ...Read more

Will I be ok to put a permanent colour on my hair being 41 weeks pregnant

Will I be ok to put a permanent colour on my hair being 41 weeks pregnant

Should be OK: Being at 41 wk, you are likely pop any second now--your doc probably won't want you to go much longer anyway. Coloring your hair now probably won't harm the baby, but you probably won't be looking your best during and after delivery and so having your hair done after may make more sense. But what do I know, I am a guy! :-) congrats on the pregnancy and good luck. ...Read more
