Is anyone else overdue and feeling fed up waiting for our little ones to arrive? Had a sweep done on sunday morning and was in pain all day, was sure it was the beginning but nope still no sign, being gradually losing my plug since sunday night also.

Not overdue yet as 39+1 but I am feeling patient. Just wanted to sympathise! Nothing happening at all at this end. hmm

The midwife said i was 2/3cm dilated when i went for my sweep so its a start i suppose but i keep thinking with every pain or niggle that yay this is it but nope lol

Fingers crossed you don't have too much longer to wait!

And me! 40 weeks today. Had sweep but nothing happening. Really don't want to be induced again!

It's nice to know other ladies are feeling that same frustration.

I'm 40+3 today too... Woke up with cramps in the night and felt so hopeful but nothing came of it. My sweep will be Friday if he's not here before then. I'm surprised by how fed up I feel, the whole pregnancy I've been saying that first ones are always late, but now I'm overdue I feel like he should be here!
Hope the sweep works for you.

Dh and I went out for lunch and then to cinema to keep busy, was lovely.

Augustwedding Tue 28-Jul-15 20:11:07

Just realised that sounded really smug! What I meant was took my mind off being overdue. Luckily Dh is a teacher so he is off now. I'm really hoping sweep will work!

I thought labour was starting last night but it turned out to be trapped wind. Pregnancy is so glamorous!

Let's hope these sweeps get these babies moving!

Ive had constant period like pain since 5am this morning, its really not pleasant! Wish it would go away or mount to something real lol

waitingfornumber2 Wed 29-Jul-15 13:34:15

Scottish, period pain sounds like it could definitely be the start of things. Fingers crossed for you!

ScottishSmurfette Wed 29-Jul-15 14:16:19

waitingfornumber2 Wed 29-Jul-15 21:39:24

ScottishSmurfette Wed 29-Jul-15 21:56:29
