How about 'darling I have no idea about how how this is on you but I want you to know how proud I am that you are the one I am having children with.' perhaps write it in a really sweet card with some favourite treats.

Maybe just some empathy. I know it's realistically not long now but when you're heavily pregnant one day feels like a week. Maybe you could just say "it sounds really hard, I hope bub comes soon so you don't have to deal with this pain for much longer".
It's difficult because now I think back to my pregnancy and I feel as though I wish I'd spent the last weeks relaxing and enjoying it, but then I think back to the reality of reflux, indigestion, groin pain, everything pain actually, stomach itching... it's just uncomfortable.
I hope your baby comes soon, you sound like you're a wonderful, supportive partner

What benji said sounds good. Maybe get some feel good DVDs out to help pass the time? I think if its hard to say anything don't say anything..,maybe ask her what you can say to help her through it?

She doesn't know what I can say and every time I suggest to watch her 'chick flicks' DVDs she always says no. Short of ripping my hands in there and pulling the baby out, I'm not sure how else I could help. I give her extra sleep in the mornings and don't even touch the milk for drinking cos she needs to help with indigestion etc.,

Maybe just tell her you know how over it she must be and you are happy to be her scapegoat for the last few weeks if it will help
Keep doing all the sweet and lovely things you are now and keep looking after her. Unless she is a total monster normally I'd bet she will look back and realise you did everything you could to make her feel better and she will thank you for it.

"You know I was thinking about all you have had to go through in the past 39 weeks and I realise I wouldn't have coped as well as you. In fact, I doubt I could have done it. I really appreciate you doing the hard yards for us."
You need to figure out her 'language of love'. Google it. Or she could be at a point where nothing you do will help so maybe write your thoughts/feelings down and give them to her when she has had baby and she has settled back at home.

Maybe she needs distracting? I know when I went to 41+5 weeks distraction was the best thing!!
