    Hi ladies,

    I've got a membrane sweep booked for Sunday morning but feel like I am coming down with thrush. Has anyone else used a canesten type pessary two/three days before a membrane sweep? I did ring the birth centre where I'm due to have the sweep last night and the midwife said it didn't really matter if I had used the pessary before they do the sweep, but I am still worried about it. Ordinarily I'd just leave it and see if it seems to properly develop, but I'm tempted to just use pessary tonight so I don't have to worry about it. Arrghhhh, don't know what to do!

    Ah thanks, yes, an update would be fab. It's horrible wondering what to do for the best. If I wasn't pregnant and so close to my due date, I'd leave it and see if it developed into 'yep, that's definitely thrush' but I worry about going into labour and inadvertantly passing thrush to the baby!
