    here i get to see my MW on the 16th (my due date) and then not till 41weeks. Tbh i thought she'd she me more!!!

    Will she give me a sweep on my due date or wait?

    How far over were you when you had a sweep? i'd prefer not to have one as i don't like the thought of it!

    I'm due exactly the same day as you and am in the same boat. I won't see my midwife till 41 weeks if nothing happens before then. I assume that is the when you will set an induction date. If they don't already do so, I will be asking for a damn good sweep that day too :)

    I had a sweep at t+10 and and was booked for induction at t+13. Luckily LO was born at t+12 :)

    Hopefully you won't need it

    Good luck :D

    At my last hospital check (I think that was 36 weeks) they booked me in for a sweep in case it was needed. That was 2 weeks after due dates to the nearest Monday, as they do the clinics on a monday. I only saw the Midwife every 2 weeks for the last six weeks

    I had a sweep at 3 days over with Nathan but that was by a doctor as I had an appointment to be given an induction date for 14 days late anyway. I never got given a sweep at all with Aimee and was induced 11 days late.

    I saw mine every week after 36 weeks, so towards the end mine were 39+2, 40+2, 41+2 (sweep), had Ryan on 41+3. My induction was booked in my 40+2 appointment and would have been 41+5.

    I had a sweep on T+4 which according to the midwife wasn't successful because my cervix was very far back but Maya was born the day after! :D It was a bit uncomfortable but not that bad and to be honest I didn't mind as I was really fed up waiting by that time! :)
