41 weeks today.

Had a sweep yesterday afternoon. Was 2cm dilated and 50% effaced.

Bloody show this morning and lots of period type cramps and back ache today.

Could this be it?

I've not been through it yet, August for me!
Hope all goes well for you xx

Sounds promising although could still be days away. What's the next plan re sweeps/induction etc?

Nothing overnight sad

Induction booked Thursday. This is number three and the latest. Feel like my body is letting me down.

Once you get going it will slip out like a bar of soap!

Live birth thread please?!x

Oh, poor you.

I presume that you've decided you'll agree the induction? (Obviously, in case you don't know, you don't have to, and you won't even be 42 weeks at that point, so you could agree but push it back).

I'm 40+5 and in the same boat. No. 3 and definitely the last. With the stress that both my previous ones were quite late and the hospital moved my date forward at the 12 week scan against my wishes (the phrase 'computer says no' was actually used!!) so I'm really scared I'll be facing induction in a week or so.

I hope you are holding up ok. Are the older ones at school or pre-school or do you have them with you? Can you rest? Eat 17 pineapples just to feel like you are doing something?
