Wait a week or two, they'll show up. I don't know what people have told you, but 40 weeks is generally considered full term. It can be really frustrating waiting for things to happen in the final weeks, but patience is the best course. Some women experience Braxton Hicks contractions leading up to real labor, but not all. Depending on where you live, doctors will wait to induce until after 40 weeks, usually 41 or 42 weeks based on your health and the baby's condition.

Dont worry they will come soon enough. If this is your first child then normally they are late. 40 weeks is full term and depending on where you are in the world they let you go 12 days over before stepping into give you a push start!
