    just niggles and more of my plug loss :shock: so no diffrent to the last week seems like my little horror will make his appearance when he wants, i really was hoping on this cos of all the horror stories on induction, i went to hospital yesterday and they didnt give me a date for induction yet will do that next fri at 40+8 is this normal to leave it so long without a date, my daughter is getting so impatient i fell so sorry for her she just cant wait for her brother to be here.

    My 1st i had a sweep on my due date and 1 1/2 hours later i started.

    Can't remember with my 2nd

    with my 3rd i had a sweep about a week overdue and started 3 days after.

    Usually they dont give you an induction date till about 10 days late, well thats here anyway.

    still keeping everything x'd for you

    Hi ladies,

    What exactly is a sweep - is it another name for being induced or is it something else. What actually happens?

    Just want to be prepared!!!

    Cheers.

    a rough internal examaination is the way i would describe it :( it doesnt hurt but is quite uncomfortable and it helps to stimulate your cervix and helps maybe get things going (not in my case yet)

    dont worry too much about being induced susie, they are not all bad. I had an induction and everything went very well, i would not be bothered about having another one at all!
    Hope things happen for you soon :hug: :hug:

    Susie, if it doesn't happen by your next app, will you ask for another sweep?

    I'm sure once they give you your induction dae you'll start naurally, i did and so have lots of other women.

    :pray: :pray:
