    I am really scared. I have my sweep at 3.30 today and have been up all night worrying about it.

    I just don't see the point as I don't feel like it will do anything to help baby come. I'm starting to feel like I will never get to meet him and that all fun and excitment has been taken away.

    I hate being pregnant and want it over with. I'm sorry if that sounds ungrateful but I am feeling really low and can't take much more. :(

    it's really nothing to worry about, and my ryan came the day after my sweep, so really it won't be much longer to wait. think how many weeks you have already waited, and how little time you have left to go. x

    NIE look on the bright side.... You've had a terrible end to your pregnancy and you've often said you've had enough.. The sweep is like the beginning of the end... soon the horrible pregnancy thing will be all over and you'll have your little one in your arms.

    The sweep might be uncomfortable... but I'm pretty sure with all the problems and pain you've had, that it will feel like nothing in comparison.

    Good luck and as Lis said... Midna was convinced her sweep wouldn't work and it did get things moving... :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug:

    I completely understand how you feel about ther excitement going. But don't worry about your sweep... it may not be the route you wanted to take but if you want your baby, which of course you do, it's time to start getting on with all the things that can make that happen.

    I really really do sympathise, I have a sweep tmrw afternoon. But I will be glad to do something pro-active, it will help me feel more posotive again. And to be honest, I hurt most of the time so if causes a little more pain what the hell!!

    I want my baby, healthy and safe, more than anything, and this is one way to encourage that. It can't stay in for much longer!!!!


    GOOD LUCK!!!! You'll probably beat me now!

    Good luck (you've probably just had it or just about to)

    I enjoyed my sweep when I had my first - and my cervix was very high and tight shut.
    Drove home and voila - early labour kicked in :D

    When you get back go up and down your stairs a lot (if you're not in too much pain :hug: ) or have some wild sex- doesn't matter who with ;) ;) :rotfl:

    UPDATE:


    I'm back from my appointment and had my sweep..... :) It wasn't too bad, more uncomfortable with a lot of pressure than painful.

    I have increased BP, urine is clear, head is now 2/5 engaged and 1-2 cm dilated.

    I am bleeding a tiny bit so hopefully labour will kick in soon, but if not I have an induction date of the 18th..........Looks like I'll be having a quiet wedding anniversary (24th) and Christmas this year. :sleep:
