    Why on earth didn't she do a sweep today? That seems like a waste of time - you could have had another one on Friday if todays didn't work! xx

    What a ridiculous rule - i think some midwives make things up to suit them, my SIL had a sweep at 40+3 with her second daughter - she had 3 in fact on 3 consecutive days. I've been so lucky so far and only had the lovely midwives, although maybe i just look hormonal and scary.

    Friday will be here before you know it and at least if you are that bit overdue it had moer chance of triggering something. xx

    And it means I have to travel 30 mins to just go and get it done as my midwife is not working so can't come to my house :(

    That seems a pointless rule!
    Hope this week goes fast for you or baby makes an appearance before Fri.
