I am 40 weeks and 4 days overdue. The midwife offered me a sweep 2 days ago, but I couldnt go through with it. The thought of an internal exmaination terrifies me. i know it sounds pathetic, but the only thing I am scared about when I go into abour is the internal examinations that will be performed. Does anyone know, if I can say no to them or do you have to have them. Is anyone else in the same boat?
