I'm 41 weeks 5 days and I have had 3 sweeps and they've booked me in for a fourth tomorrow, ive never heard of anyone having 4? Is this normal?

You can say no to them! I've never had one (three very late babies), there isn't great evidence that they are particularly effective. There's no harm in them either so if you don't mind the process then they can do as many as they like!

I think I had at least 4, might have been 5. Probs wouldn't have one next time! If your cervix isn't favourable i wouldn't bother.
DS was induced and 16 days late.

It was 80% defaced on Saturday and 1.5cm dilated, but I'm not sure how sure that means Il go into labor, they've booked induction for Thursday sad
