I am 40 weeks 8 days pregnant. Due to be induced in two days. Want to go naturally, any suggestions?have tried spicy food and long walks. Nothing work

6 weeks pregnant. Not used to exercising. Started 30 min walks 2 weeks ago. Today i did some fast running for short intervals. Felt slight cramp. Be ok?

Separation anxiety: Sounds like separation anxiety which usually escalates around this age in a normal child.
