    Everything is fine! But she attempted a stretch and sweep but could only just reach my cervix but not enough to stretch and sweep! She did say its thinned out and soft though.

    I feel a bit gutted about it. Wanted her to say I was dilating ect..

    Anyone else had this?

    Just read midwifes right up and it says I'm 50% effaced.

    Is that good?

    Yes 50% effaced means babys heads dropping down 100% will be when the neck of the cervix has widened enough to let baby deliver

    Ah hun, don't read too much into the fact that she couldn't do the actual stretch and sweep.
    When I had one with DD, my cervix was favourable...thinned out and the mw could do the s and s. On the very same day another PF mummy had one done and she was exactly the same as you - she felt really down about it tbh.
    Guess who went into labour that night?...Well, it certainly wasn't me! I had to wait another 5 or 6 days before DD made an appearance!
    Congrats on getting to D day by the way! It won't be long for you now! xx

    It is good that the cervix is changing it could have been uneffaced. Most of the work is it softening and moving forward so don't be discouraged.
