So I was taken into the antenatal assessment unit this morning for the 3rd time due to reduced foetal movement. Everything is perfectly fine but as I am 39+1 weeks, they gave me a membrane sweep. I'm 1cm dilated and they implied that might snowball now. Awful experience (although I imagine it's just an idea of what's yet to come) and I'm now experiencing period-like cramps. Walking is agony.
What're your experiences with this, what can I expect now? Baby stayed in over Christmas.. is she likely to come in the next day or so?
I had a sweep at 37 weeks and was 1-2cm, midwife implied that my DD would be here by the weekend as all was quite favourable. Three weeks later she was still cooking. Had another sweep at 40 weeks and was 3-4cm, labour started at 40+5.
