    So I am 40 weeks+3 today and I'm getting increasingly more anxious and fed up! I've been having backache and cramps since last Weds (12th) that have in fact gotten worse/stronger each day, yet no progress! :wall2:

    Had a consultants appt at 40 weeks at my new chosen hospital, I mentioned the cramps so they examined me to check if I was in early labour, however doctor confirmed that my cervix is quite far back still, but it is starting to thin out which is a positive!

    Have a membrane sweep tomorrow with community MW at 1.30pm yet I don't hold out much hope :trouble:

    This pregnancy feels never ending and I'm so desperate to meet my little boy!!!


    GRRRRRR

    You never know how fast it can all change Hun, keep the hope haha! When I went in with irregular contractions they held me on the labour ward because I was favourable but my cervix was still posterior til I was 3cm, and it was only just starting to thin out by this point too! So to hear your cervix is starting to thin out now is a huge positive! How did it go today? Xxx

    Sorry ladies I hadn't seen these replies until now �� Baby brain! Still no progress since Monday unfortunately, I'm being induced on Tuesday 25th, they want me in for 8am so at least I haven't gotta wait all day! My mums also coming up Monday afternoon from Bristol (I live in Derby) so on a positive note she gets to definitely be my 2nd birth partner which I'm over the moon about!! Going to enjoy my last few days and my last weekend before parenthood! Hope you gals are all doing well xxx
