I just had an appointment with the midwife, she was wonderful. My usual midwife was away and usually just sees me quickly collects my samples and ushers me off, politley but not inspiring. This new one sat and listened to my busy last few weeks. I went in to see my consultant because of antenatal depression, he offered me an induction pretty much straight away. In the end i delayed the induction because i wanted to do it as naturally as possible. And as soon as i had a bit more control the antsy-ness eased i made a plan to keep my mind busy which helped and gave the baby a bit more time. So i told her my dillemma Try and wait, both my other two were early and i have dream labours, no contractions, and the last one was waters broke baby out 45 min later, downside having to keep myself sane (sounds easier when i get can so aggressive, miserable and cut off at times, it affects my family too) or Go in and be induced, which is a quick and easy end, no more stressing freaking and all of this over, downside being forced into labour and having to go high dependancy. She sat listned and went through all of it with me, and then suggested a sweep to see if we could start it naturally, which she did and it was no wheer near as bad as i expected, plus she is coming to see me on tues to check how im feeling and give me a new check point to get to. So all those who are hoping for a sweep before 40 weeks there is a bit of hope.
