    I have an appointment with consultant wednesday for a scan to check babys growth as it was static a few week ago, last week belly had gone up a cm on the fundal height chart but going for a mini scan to be sure. if alls well and babys grown do you think she would do a sweep? i will be 39+5 and at my next midwife appointment after this i will be 40+4. will the fact tht im 2 days shy of 40weeks make a difference ? x

    couldnt see 2 days making much difference, also mw told me first sweep only works on a small precentage of people so could be past 40 wen uget second one

    With my last I had a sweep at 39wks as she couldn't fit me in again till 41, just lay it on thick that your in loads of discomfort, I had him two days early I went overdue with my others so it's worth a try
