I would definitely ask and explain your reasons, it'll do no harm to ask. I went ten days over with my second, despite plenty sex and sweeps

Thanks for all the advice and support ladies means alot. I have been on my ball doing rotating of the hips and apparently lunges help so I am going to try them with Husband holding me up because of my siatica (baby is on siatic nerve).

Baby was not very active today which was worrying but she has picked up now (at least the ball has done something). I have anxiety so am convinced that I won't go into labour naturally. I am convinced that unless something is done she won't come.

Sex brought both other kids and hasnt worked (as of yet) this time but at the point where we don't want to touch eachother lol (not arguing just so tired of all the sexy time). I trust this midwife she was the same one as my Daughter (who came early so sweep was not needed). I am thinking of telling her how my anxiety is affecting me and see what she suggests.

I just wish I could get it into my head that labour can and does trigger for women without any intervention and trust that my body has 11 days left before 42 weeks :/ feel so fed up (sorry for ranting, am just an emotional wreck).

My friend in the UK just went to nearly 42 weeks. Luckily she went into labor naturally a day before her induction!!

It's so different everywhere. Here in the US I was given a sweep at 38 weeks with my DS and it didn't really do anything, anyways. I was induced 3 days later due to blood pressure.

It must be hard with your family having erratic schedules next week. Have you been doing All The Things to try induce labor on your own? Sex, walking, spicy foods, etc, etc...?

We cross posted. Sounds like you're doing everything! Anxiety makes thing worse....I have anxiety too and I know!! Definitely tell your MW at the your next appt how anxious you are getting. Even if you have to be induced at 42 that's not too long to wait...but our bodies are made for this and even with anxiety I'm sure you'll go into labor in the next 11 days!! Sending labor vibes your way!!!

For both my 1st and 2nd I had a sweep booked for 41 weeks and they wouldn't do it before. I ended up going naturally for both at 40+5 and 40+4.

I was induced with my last pregnancy at 40+5 just because I was so big! I asked how far they would let me go over this time as I’m must likely going to have another 9 lb’er and my mw told me it would be nearer to 40 weeks then to 42 weeks.
I would definitely tell them how your feeling and I don’t see why they wouldn’t give you a sweep!! Hopefully baby will come sooner rather than later!! Xxx

I guess it varies where you are! With my 1st I was offered a sweep at 3 days over I refused as I was in agony that day and just wanted to be left alone, turns out I was actually in active labour at this point, damn my bad first baby knowledge!

With my second I was a few problems with him and had a sweep at 39 weeks which did nothing anyway, I got induced on my date date and sure enough he arrived on his due date 😊

Hi ladies.

Got midwife in 3 hours so will let you all know what she says. Baby is so active all night again which is unusual, she is waking at unusual times. Tried the ball and squats, everything else we have tried it hasn't worked. Woke up not even a twinge. 4 days over at the moment.

Just had to delete fb as people won't stop asking me if baby girl has arrived yet :/ will have a chat with Midwife about sweep and see what she says

I'm in the UK and booked in for a sweep on Wednesday at 38+3, this is my 3rd.

I'm under a consultant because my BMI is 31 and I'm 39 so an older mum. At my last app she said I can have a sweep if I want from 37 weeks.
