    Hi girls,

    I'm off for my sweep tomorrow. When I read up on this procedure all the books are really positive that it can do something and start you off within 48 hours,but all the experiences I hear about it, it hasn't done anything..... I'm going to have it done because I really want a water birth and each day that passes reduced my chances.....

    I also book my induction date tomorrow..... Bum and bugger. Stubborn ass baby.:hissy::hissy:

    Mine went ok, I like to think it did something even tho it never sent me into labour with 48 hours, i did go a week later hours before my 2nd one :rofl: you never know LO might be like mine and not like the midwife touching his head and the thought of this might make him POP out :)

    Good luck hunni :) XxxxX

    P.s the more relaxed you are the more likely it is to work as the better she will get at your cervix. So i know its not pleasent the thought of a lady with here fingers up your *wohoo* but to be honest in labour my midwife had her's in my *wohoo* more than out :rofl: so get used to it and what better time than now......so grit teeth and smile and bare it, doesnt last long and chances of it working out weighs all of that :) XXxxXX

    It would be so funny if she booked us in for induction on same date... Seeing as our 5th Oct babies aren't doing jack shit. x

    i had one last week - and although i didnt go into labour i have had pains and niggles since with an increase in discharge. i phoned today to ask for another - so am going to see her as i dont want to be induced on fri - am to looking for a water birth.

    Silly point - take a sanitary towl with you -- you may bleed and thier ones are not the most comfortable - i didnt bleed or get a show but my cervix was thick and posterior. think it works best if your cervix is ripe - so ask and if it is keep everything crossed, other than your legs that is!!!!

    I had one friday and it was no worse than a smear. Nothing to report so far except a few more niggles, BHs and a bit of pain in my cervix. Hoping it moves me from about 2cms by the time I have my next one which is a week tomorrow.
