    I was induced at 38 weeks with severe SPD & SJD. I couldn't walk. I couldn't get up and down stairs, I couldn't even press the brake on my car. I was weaned off cocodamol from 35 weeks but as the painkillers reduced and the pain increased, they gave me a sweep at 36 weeks as my cervix was already favourable, and nothing happened, another sweep at 37 weeks but induced at 38.
    I have hypermobility syndrome which affects my hips not being pregnant though.
    I feel your pain. My consultant agreed to induce me at 37 weeks then she was off at my 36 week appointment and I saw someone else and he disregarded everything she said and booked me in for 39 weeks. I cried my eyes out infront of him and he wasn't bothered! I thought 1 week until my due date and that's all you give me.

    I took it to patient relations and complained and got a second opinion but as it was bank holiday soonest was 38 weeks. Still better than 39.

    Speak to your consultant if you have one, if not ask MW to refer you urgently. It's truly awful and I'm dreading it this time around. However as I'm hyper mobile, I will be consultant lead from 18 weeks. Good luck xx
