That's the one, ours doesn't either and it's the biggest hospital for miles!

I know my local hospital did them when I was pregnant with DD 4 years ago as my midwife at the time was talking me through all the pain relief options but as it turns out I went drug-free. This time we didn't even bother having the discussion. Lol. I have asked for entonox in case I need stitches again though.

Hi everyone! I'm joining you! I was due on Sunday, so now 3 days over. I have horrendous SPD so feeling really miserable that I've not popped yet.

My previous 2 births were inductions at 42 weeks so I'm assuming this one is going to be the same but still living with small hope that I may go naturally. I've had 1 sweep that didn't turn into anything and another scheduled for Monday.

Will continue with the small hope and the constant symptom spotting (although that's minimal) and feeling like I'm being beaten from the inside out. (This baby has very vigorous movements!!) How are you all getting on? x

beccy - I'm sorry to hear you have spd, it's really horrible to have hopefully you'll be able to go sooner this time, maybe the sweep on Monday will get things moving!

What's a sweep like? I really hate internals, is it much worse?

Sweeps aren't too bad, they are uncomfortable. And it depends on the person doing it lol ive had some you barely feel, and some i have to breath thru lol. They have never worked for me though

Breathing through it definitely helped. They are not so much painful as more really uncomfortable! I've had about 5 now across the 3 pregnancies and Parkep is right - it really can depend on the competency of the person doing it!

Yeah the heat is killer. Just had the air con fixed on my new car and I could have cried xD
I have a nice weekend of friends and family to enjoy.

Toddler's sleep seems to be improving too, she has adjusted to dropping her last nap so that's good timing.

Gosh the movements of baby now can be so painful!
I have several painful tightenings a day now which hopefully are gently making things more favourable and shaving time off the main event hehe. No plug loss or anything yet though.

I never had a sweep because here they only do it for first time mum's at 41 weeks and she was born on that day hehe. This time I could have it from 40 weeks but probably won't because my last came at a normal time so even though I'm desperate to see baby I don't see the need for the intervention unless they're talking about induction x

I had a sweep today and I'll be honest, it REALLY hurt. The nurse had to tell me to breathe through it. But I'm only at 1 centimeter dilated. My doctor warned me it would be uncomfortable and said that they're usually less painful at 2 centimeters, so I don't mean to scare anybody off! I know there's only a small chance it will help but right now I'm just trying anything.

Would any of you feel comfortable traveling an hour away at this point? Tomorrow's my nephew's birthday and we're planning on maybe driving to a nearby city (two hours round-trip). I had a 28 hour labor the first time so I feel like I'd have plenty of time to get back, and I'm getting stir-crazy just sitting around. I'd rather distract myself and be up on my feet a lot. I'm not sure what to do!

We had a heat wave the other week (90-100 when it's usually 70-80) and I was dyiiiing. And I'm on summer vacation so I just sit at home lol. I'm just struggling in general at this point. I can't remember the last time I cooked anything other than breakfast. Showering is exhausting and my bff wants me to hang out Saturday from 6-12am?! And she does not get I'm tired and I don't want to go outside to celebrate her abusive bf's birthday and watch people drink and bowl.

Second yeah. I would. I have kaiser and they gave hospitals everywhere, and if I started having contractions I would just head home. As long as you're not driving, you know? But that's just me. I'd be more concerned about being physically up for it. We went to a fourth bbq and I fell asleep on the host' couch for an hour lol
