I hope she does offer me one , she didn't say she would last week though but I'll mention it. Shouldn't complain because I'm very lucky to be pregnant but yes I'm definitely ready for this baby to come :-)
My midwife offered me one on my due date. You can always ask as well. When she attempts the sweep she will be able to tell you if your cervix is favourable, soft and or in the right position, also whether are already slightly dilated.
I had one done on my due date, and she was able to stretch my cervix to 3cm dilated, my DD arrived four days later.
I've had raspberry leaf tablets 2-3 a day I've got the tea too but I'm not keen , I've had pineapple and pineapple juice , yesterday I did a 2.4 mile walk and had sex in the morning . Can't stop crying so fed up, this baby just doesn't want to come and after having a crap pregnancy from 4weeks I've really had enough of it all
Try evening primrose capsules, you have to insert 1 or 2 (inside) at night is better so they can work properly. It softens the cervix apparently. I swear that and nipper tweaking helped with mine. But at the same time baby won't come until good and ready hope it's not too much longer xx
Me too thanks x tonight I've had curry for tea , had 3 raspberry leaf tablets today, just about to eat pineapple while a hot bath is running . Oh and we've just been for a walk for an hour and I weeded the front garden when we got back.. And once I've had the bath where going to bed wink wink if by tomorrow evening this baby hasn't come I'm just gonna sit my arse down And wait lol cos doing all this I'm knackered !! X
I've got a MW appointment tomorrow (40+5) and have been having strong BH on and off for over a week now. I am being offered a sweep tomorrow but am declining as my GP told me there is zero medical proof that they work (and that people who go into labour after having one would have done anyway). To be fair though, I have taken GPs word and haven't done any research myself!
