Post subject: Sweep!
Well, I went for my membrane sweep this morning, and didnt get the outcome I was hoping for! The midwife told me that my cervix was very posterior, and she could barely reach it... therefore she couldnt do the sweep properly!! I asked her what this all meant, and it basically means that this baby is not going anywhere until I'm induced...
Roll on saturday morning at 8am.

Hi Petralou - I was started off with both mine too, they used a product called Prostin, it was a gel inserted via a syringe into the cervix, try not to worry it is completely painless when they do this. I too had a bit of a sweep however, same as you my son was not intending on going anywhere!! To be honest I found that more painful than the induction lol. Good luck just think Saturday you will be holding your little one..
Take care, Flossie xx
