I'm still here too 6 days until my due date and no signs of baby moving yet Am feeling more pressure low down and in back passage area So thinking maybe head has engaged even more? Got midwife Friday so sure she'll tell me if that is the case.
Nervous about labour starting (fear of the unknown!) but really, really don't want to have to be induced so hoping little one does get going themselves pretty soon now x
Just got back from my appointment. Had a stretch and sweep, it was pretty painful. The Dr was rummaging around in there for ages....! I was 3cm dilated already so she is pretty optimistic that things will start happening, I'm not so sure.
I have since lost some bloody mucus which is to be expected and have another sweep booked for Monday...if I make it til then.
My plan for today is to drive over all the speed bumps near the school over and over again....will keep all you ladies updated. X
ML, sounds like it shouldn't be too long for you Have you had any signs of being dilated, ie any 'show' before this sweep? x
I've been losing bits of mucus for a week or two but nothing substantial and nothing with any blood in it. I never lost my bloody plug until labour with my previous children so I don't see it as an indicator in my case.
I was surprised to have progressed but I have been having wicked cramping every night for a few hours before bed.
Since the sweep I have been feeling more period pain pressure and some contractions but nothing unusual. I have a few things planned for the rest of the week so I don't start obsessing about symptoms, however, I know from my last labour that it can come on quick so at least I am ready to go if required.
