    So, today was my midwife appointment and I dont know what got into me, instead of going to my usual midwife I diverted to the main hospital to ask to see the consultant obgyn. Lol. Fortunately, he was available and i pleaded my case for an early induction nxt week on Wednesday. Told him i dont want 2 go past 40wks after having 2 miscarriages last year.
    Behold he agreed and instructed the midwife to do a sweep. Midwife sweeped me up to 2cm dilated. Said cervix was very favourable, soft, central and head was very low.
    I basically have a what looks like a 6 months bump due to baby being so low, and a Im walking like a duck.
    Since the sweep had some blood stained discharge and some contractions. Fingers crossed ladies.
    So, now I know I have at least 6 days left.

    Sorry about ure previous losses. Hope it all goes well.
    I found the last week running up to my induction flew by so fast.

    Awww hopefully its the start of something.

    I had bleeding after my sweeps it lasted for about 2 days and contractions but they fizzled out. It is normol I'm not sure if they told you that.
    Hopfully ure contractions do pick up and turn into the real thing.
    How many weeks are you hon?

    Contractions less frequent now...this baby is playing with me. They will start induction tomorrow morning if I have not delivered by then. Will definitely be going on antibiotics for both me and baby after delivery. Looking at at least 1 week admission.
