    Weeeeehooooo!!!
    37 weeks today, so this means I'm officially fully cooked right?!
    Exciting times hehe.

    Got another growth scan this Thursday coming (6th June!)
    So get to see my little princess again :D

    Was at the midwife Thursday just gone (30th May)
    And she mentioned that when I next see the consultant, which will be after my scan, and they should discuss a sweep with me.. First I've heard of this! Asked my MW why? And she said.. 'They'll discuss it next week.' And that was it. So left me feeling very baffled. I went on the NHS website to read what a sweep actually entailed. To find that a sweep is offered..
    1) Over due.
    2) Mother is suffering from pregnancy diabetes, pre-eclampsia, symphysis pubis dysfunction or obstetric cholestasis, etc.
    3) If the baby isn't growing as expected.
    4) If your having more then one baby.
    Out of these I have No.2 (SPD) and No.3 (Baby measuring small). So could this be the reason why?

    But now I'm thinking, I'm in agony and can't walk/get out of bed/or go to the toilet without help, most days, without being in agony. So could I request a sweep??

    Congratulations on 37 weeks! You may as well request a sweep. More guarantee it'll no anything but every little helps and all that.
    I have mild spd so try and rest a lot as it hurts after any walking or housework etc. I am trying to avoid it getting as bad as yours, sounds horrid. Were you signed off work early? Xx

    I was made redundant in October, then found out I was pregnant..
    And cause of being pregnant, people haven't been to keen to take me on (Cause I'd just qualified as a social care & support worker - so some situations were classed as high risk and unsafe) So I've had a pretty longggggggggg 9 month lol. Thankfully one place has told me to get back in touch once I've had my baby..
    But in fairness, yes I would of 100% signed off work early, as I genuinely wouldn't of been able to make it to & from work, or get about at work properly from about 30 weeks x
