and I'm feeling nervous/excited..Been having cramps and cervical pains since Monday on and off as well as backache so hoping it will kick things off...although am feeling a bit nervy that she has to "go down there"... I'm normally fine with internal exams but that's in the docs/hospital..I think I feel a bit weird about it cuz she's coming to do it in my home..and have just had a text from my best friend saying "I've never had a sweep but I've heard bad things, let me know how it goes" - Gee, thanks for the confidence boost..!! NOT!! Any tips ladies? Or just some labour dust my way will be good..!
