Have just had my third sweep, am 41wks today. Mw said I could come in for a 4th on Mon if I wanted before being induced on Wed. I'm not sure I can face it really, it means arranging childcare again, travelling to hospital etc. Would a 4th really do anything if the previous 3 haven't? Wwyd?
if your waters have not broken yet have sex asap, today, tomorrow - the sperm can really help dilating the cervix - worked for us with DS3, DS5 and DD!!! I'm not kidding!
and YES, absolutely go for 4th sweep even 5th, I would! as my DS4 was a C-section my choices with 5th and 6th babies were either to go into labour naturally or have another ELCS, they would not have induced me, so yes, I was prepared to have a sweep daily to avoid another C-section!
and eat things that stimulate bowel movements (but not so much you have diahorrea!), prunes worked for me.
Will they give you a sweep if you had a show? I had one last week at 40+4 and a show 24 hours later, been having sex regularly but still haven't started! Mw told me she wouldn't do another, but I will request another if they would do it!!
