    Its just like having an internal done - mine was uncomfortable but didn't hurt and I had the baby with 24 hours.

    :rotfl: when i first read about them i kept reading 'i'm off for a sweep' etc. i kept thinking of all these preg ladies sweeping their gardens as i thought the action brought on the labour.

    LOL :rotfl: :rotfl:

    The midwife sweeps her finger around to hopefully get the cervix to open.

    i can just see loads of women all going to the local hospital for a sweep of the grounds! there would be some bloody tidy hospitals! :rotfl:

    Hee hee!

    Thanks ladies.

    I never knew that pregnancy was such a minefield of weird terms that I have never heard before!

    People going on about "sweeps" and "shows".

    I had started to think that all pregnant women had a fascination with Mary Poppins or sommat......

    Get it??!
