    Good luck hun, hope everything goes well and your BP lowers again :)

    Just goes to show how different it is dependent on hospital - my MW won't consider even an internal before 41 weeks, let alone a sweep or induction, so if I'm going stir-crazy at that point I'm probably going to have to beg :p

    i hate this... because tis christmas crap. What they gonna do on xmas day turn women in labour away cos its xmas?
    You cannot wait 15 days its not fair and we all know the placenta starts to deteriorate after so many days overdue. I would demand before the 15 days. Why cant they do it 23rd if they want you to go as long as possible?

    Good luck i want to fight your corner.... give me the number!!!!

    The ususal is 14 days but being that its xmas and there are lots of staff having holidays and public holidays things will be difficult this time of year.

    A collegaue of mine was due on Dec 16th and didnt get her induction until Jan 3rd becasue the consultant said tough luck I'm on holiday you'll have to wait!!!!!!!!!!

    Strange that every area is so different:shrug: we all know the placenta starts to deteriorate after the 42 wks so thats an added worry too as if everything else isn't enough!:dohh:
