Hi all, I posted recently about having a low lying placenta at 34 weeks & having to have another scan at 36 weeks to see if I needed a c section. Well, that was today & I had both an external & internal scan & found the placenta is low but not covering the cervix & baby's head is below it so I can have a natural birth - good news! BUT, then they told me that baby is measuring small & they are going to induce me at 38/39 weeks. They said I might just have small babies & might be fine or it could be that the placenta isn't functioning properly & so it's best to get baby out. They have booked me in for a sweep on Tues (I'm only finishing work on fri so not much chillin time for me if that works!) & then an induction the following week. Just feeling really worried about baby now & also about the prospect of being induced as have heard it's more painful & more chance of complications?? Also, how often do sweeps tend to work & are they painful? How long does it take to do a sweep?!
