Been offered sweep at 37 weeks?


I had my consultant app today I'm 32 weeks 3 days and he offered me sweeps from 37 weeks... I wont see him again but he put it on the screen ( computer ) and also in my notes... but how do I go about having them done? Is it hospital or local mw office? Last time they offered it me on the day of the consultant so had it there and then and had it at 2pm and she came by 9pm so pretty fast! Thanks xx

Is there a reason theyíve offered it to you so early? Iíve never heard of that before.

Iíve only had one done and had it at the hospital, but think everywhere is different. And I declined a second one because it was thoroughly unpleasant and did nothing for me!

I had a sweep with my eldest at 38 weeks at the hospital after my scan. I think it was because I was a high risk pregnancy. I had lost twins at 24 weeks previously. It set me off that night and she was born the next day.

With my second they wouldn't sweep me until I was over 40 weeks. I had one done at 40+3 and had her early hours of 40+5.

They have said to me that if my growth scans continue to measure on the 95th centile I will have a sweep at 38 weeks this time too xx
