I am due DC2 today and just know that I will end up being induced like last time. However I really dont like the idea of a sweep. Am seeing the MW tomorrow and think she will probably book one in for me. Is it possible to be induced (prostin gel etc) without sweep first.
I had an ok induction with DC1, emergency CS with DC2, and successful VBAC [smug emoticon] following 2 sweeps when I was 1 and 2 weeks post dates - of all of them the last delivery was by far the mostenjoyable best during which I felt most in control.
Yes, a "good" sweep is very uncomfortable, but, IMO, hey ho!! If it works, it is well worth it, or was for me.
Why are you not keen on sweep but will consider induction? Also, why are you so certain that you will need any kind of help to go into labour??
Good luck, whatever happens. I do hope you have the kind of delivery you would like, however does not always happen...
