I'm currently 40 weeks and three days and I'm shattered. My tummy hurts every time I bend ,I feel dragging in my lower stomach, I pee and I get up and I feel like I need another wee straight away and tonight my back is aching. I've not had any mucus (that I've noticed anyway) just had an increase in cm and feel like I'm wetting myself all the time( its a little yellow on a pad so its wee I think). I've not had any contractions I don't think , but my stomach goes all tight , just like my braxton hicks and isn't painful just uncomfy. According to my midwife on thurs he was only 3/5ths engaged , and she said her or my OB will give me a sweep on mon or tues. do you think with my lack of signs my cervix will react or do you think I can likely expect to wait ten days . What does the sweep feel like?. I've only had two exams in my life, one was a smear where they found what they thought was a polyp and the other was them attempting to remove it and discovering I've just got a wrinkly cervix and it was just like a fatty lump after a bit of tugging and poking lol. Odd having three women having a good feel and investigation of your ladybits- lol guess its good preparation for labour exams. Is it gonna feel simular to my smear? It was quite uncomfy because they had to move the speculum about to get past my lump and see in my cervix. I'm so terrified but I'm so tired of aching so much and waiting for the big event. The more I wait the more I panic about the pain.
