I know I'm not even at my due date yet but I'm getting so inpatient lol. I'm next at the midwife on Tuesday when I'll be 39+4. I only see her every fortnight though so if I haven't gone by my next one that would be ages over. Just curious really.

I was offered one with my 4th on my due date. When I had my other children I didn't even know what a sweep was. Very Happy Very Happy my sweep didn't work and I went myself a week later.

I don't think they'll do it before your due date. I would think she book you in for one on your due date.

I had one on my actual due date. Once you reach our due date you should be seeing your midwife on a weekly basis anyway. Well thats what I had, but could be different in your area.

Cant believe your LO is nearly here. Its so exciting Very Happy Very Happy

Thanks, hopefully she'll book me in for a week after then when I'm a few days over. I can't believe how impatient I've got. I was absolutely fine when I was still working last week, but not I've finished I'm just bored and ready. For some reason I'm just not expecting to go naturally. Been getting loads of twinges and aches the last few days but nothing that's leading to anything.

Well just got back from the midwife and she has booked me in for a sweep a week on Friday (41 weeks) if nothing happened by then. She did say it has been a textbook pregnancy and baby is in textbook position so keeping everything crossed am not waiting that long.

Mine was all text book and even measured perfect but little tinkler still made me wait 2 weeks past due date. Thinking about it now I had 1st sweep at just over 40 weeks and 2nd one a week later. The second one worked btw.
