Having my sweep today!!!

I am 40+5 and the midwife is coming over in this morning to do my sweep. Couldn't sleep last night as I am so worried about it incase it doesn't work.
Anyway, will let you all know how it goes and hopefully I may meet my lo this weekend (fingers crossed!!)


  • I had my sweep last night at 40+5. Quite uncomfy but not sore at the time. Feeling immense pressure and twinges since then with increased mucus. Hope that something happens over the weekend!!!

    Due to go back for a second sweep on Sunday so fingers crossed. Really don't want to get induced on Thursday.

    Good luck with your sweep and let me know how you are getting on.:?
