    ive just been to the midwife this morning, and my next appointment will be next wednesday, which will be 4 days before my due date.

    the midwife said that next week she will try and do a sweep to try and get things moving.

    why is she doing this before my due date? :think: :think:

    i know it won't always work, but just wondering why she's going to do this 4 days before im due

    you can say you don't want it if your not happy hun-
    but hey it might get things going! they normally dont do one till
    your a week overdue so if u get a chance you might aswell,
    i'm sure she wouldnt do it if she thought you weren't ready!
    good luck :)

    My Dr did one on me 3 days before I was due - she basically said once you are full term its worth a go
