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

Yes the sweep wasnt the nicest of experiences!! Although it was more uncomfortable than painful - i am getting some pains this afternoon though, and my stomach feels really tight !

Yes, saturday/sunday my baby will be here, and thats fantastic, i just cant wait now xx
