It's basically a finger in the cervix, isn't it? A small step beyond deep penetration?

A friend recommended sex when I went overdue, or if hubby refused maybe the use of a friend dildomight work, it did blush

I understand you feeling impatient - DS was 13 days late so I know how it feels - but you don't want to risk breaking your waters or setting anything off when your body's not ready for labour. It'll happen in its own good time probably

I didn't do a sweep but I did do my own VEs on account that I wasn't calling the mw yet nor getting out of the pool.

I wouldn't because I get squeamish using tampons but I just can't imagine how I would reach!!!
