    Hi ladies, just to say I'm having a sweep tomorrow! I'm also full term tomorrow- yey! Sweep is early as they might induce next week due to small baby. Has anyone had a successful sweep at 37 weeks? I'm not going to get my hopes up as it's so early & I know they don't often work, but have had loads of pelvic pain & pressure today so think baby is moving down at least. It was my first day of maternity leave today too so if sweep does work I won't have much time to relax! People keep telling me sweeps are painful, hope I'll be ok to get the train home afterwards, already been walking like an orangutang today due to pelvic pain!

    I had a sweep on Friday at 40+3, not painful at all. Cervix was reachable and I'm 1cm dliated (m/w felt baby's head), but still no arrival of baby 3 days later... Fx for you though.

    Thank you everyone! Well I had my sweep, done by a huge bloke with massive hands :-s Was a bit uncomfortable but didn't last long! Had a few aches & pains since & some light bleeding, which I assume is normal??! BUT they have booked me in for induction on Thurs eve! They will insert gel on the eve & hope to start it all off on friday. Wasn't expecting it so soon, I feel all disorganised as only finished work on fri! Was hoping for a bit more nesting time!
    I'm also feeling really worried about baby being small, I hope everything is ok :(
    Any induction stories welcome! Im so nervous now! Can't believe I'll have a baby by the weekend, I'm due on 21 Feb!
