i called the hospital today (dont have midwife) and asked the antenatal clinic to see me today - which they agreed. hoping for another sweep - had one last week to no avail, but cervix was thick and posterior. hoping they will tell me things are a little different this week and hopefully a sweep could bring on labour- really want to go by myself, want a water birth and my friday induction is fast approaching. fingers crossed - i will be so upset if nothing has happened and my body is not trying to go into labout. so excited about the appt but scared at the same time. wish me luck - really need labour dust my way - am i right in thinking you can have a second sweep after 48hrs if this one doesnt work - i must ask, maybe they will see me again on wed if nothing happens. that gives me two more chances before the friday dday!!! ARHH am back and more confused than ever- saw a different midwife who did an internal and said cervix still long, but now soft but couldnt do a sweep as entrance closed????? (but i had one last week??) and then wrote in my notes 1cm dilated. dont know what that means but think i need to deal with the fact i am not going to pop by myself, how pants - feeling very sorry for myself so just spend £40 on a pair of PJ's to chear myself up.
