So im 40+3 and yesterday i had a midwife appointment and was offered a sweep which i accepted. I was told my cervix was favourable very soft starting to efface and was a good 2cms dilated - she said she was able to give a good sweep of the membranes. That was at 3pm and at 5pm i started to get mild contractions every 20 mins until i went to bed at 11pm.... They didnt get closer together or stronger but i thought for sure i would be woken up during the night with strong contractions but NO woke up this morning with not even a slight twinge.
I had my DS 1 week early and that started with contractions, i feel like my body has done this before it should know what to do, why isnt it starting!!!
Im booked in for induction on April 14th but ill be 40+14days before they even start, i thought they would have at least started off a day of so before i hit the 2 weeks over coz i know sometimes it can take a while to get started.
Sorry this is more of a rant - from one very frustrated preg lady!. x
I started a thread similar to this, this morning. I'm 40+3 and scheduled for induction on the 12th April and I am proper fed up
I haven't had signs at all - few mild cramps and today I think I lost the tiniest bit of my plug but apart from that nada!
