    My midwife knows how desperate i am to get this baby out sooner rather than later and i just text her telling her my pains had stopped and i was really dissapointed and if there was anything i could do to help bring them back on she has said if i want to go back in tomorrow for another one or have one done friday i can.

    Just heard off my mum and my grandad is now really really bad, he now has liver failure and phneumonia and they don't think he will make it through the night now.

    Do you think i should go ahead with another sweep, or just let nature take its course? Is there any downsides to having a sweep apart from the discomfort?

    any advice i would really appreciate x

    I agree with serina, as far as I know there are no downsides so to speak, if babys not ready it wont work, but as it started some pains off it might be that it just needs the extra nudge.

    I would go for it. Then at lest if grandad holds out for a little longer he may get to see baby. Its worth giving it another try for that reason alone. x

    Go for it hun, don't think there are any downsides to having a sweep, but like some laies have said, if Lil Lady isn't ready, she won't come.

    Hope she does for you and your Grandad xox
    :hug: Thinking of you xx
