Was supposed to be having S&S today (T+2) but on examination my cervix was too posterior to perform. MW said cervix was very very soft and baby's head is very engaged (didn't move when she was examining me, which she said usually ahppens) but just that tiny bit too far back to get to.
Do I have any chance of the examination itself kicking things off ? Feeling pretty deflated
At T+2 most people would be lucky to just have a very soft cervix, especially if it is a first baby. For that reason sweeps are usually only offered in most places at at least T+7. You have nothing to worry about, labour won't be far away
Well this should make you feel better - 2 days before I had DS my cervix was hard and posterior (apparently) and not remotely dilated. There was not the slightest hope of a S&S. You are doing much better than me already. Hang on in there.
My cervix was still posterior and barely reachable at 41+6 12 hours after I was induced with gel and 3 hours b4 I went in to labour!! keep on ur feet as much as possible and try and imagine ur due date is not until 42 weeks, thats what I did!!
