consultant meeting

Feb 21, 2011 - 6 comments

so its monday and im still pg, arghh another long hard weekend. got to the hospital today and had a bit of mild backache but nothing more...we discussed in great length my options and problems regarding this cyst and delivery and its thought if i have a normal delivery at the main hospital then they'd be satisfied so no waterbirth at my local unit!
she did however agree to a sweep, her idea not mine, she examined me and agreed baby is engaged! well first time for everything none of my other children did...anyhow 10 painful sweeps around and she said if that didnt work i can have another one next week! i hope this one works!!!
ive not felt much yet but then gotta give it time...she said im 1-2 cm dilated tho the cervix is long and thin....whatever that means....anyhow she was happy that all is well and that things should start moving along nicely...DH said he needed 2 more weeks to finish laying the hall floor and she was pretty sure we dont have that much time....thank goodness so fingers crossed her sweep does the trick..especially as i had a touch of low backache beforehand xx

I'll keep my fingers crossed that the sweep gets things going for you.  Be sure to keep us updated.  Hopefully you'll be holding your little one soon!!!!

Aww I hope everything goes well and like they said, You'll be holding your lil precious girl soon!   Can't wait to see pics!!!  

Sorry for being nosey but I'm curious as to what "Sweep" means?  I've seen several ladies talk about this and as I've never even been pregnant was just wondering.   Anyways, good luck hun!! :D

a sweep is where the midwife/consultant/gynae sticks what feels like they're whole hand inside you and vigourously sweep it around the top of your cervix to loosen it away from the membrane sack containing b aby, its said to help labour to kick start and is a procedure which can be performed but will mean that IF you go into labour following one its still classed as a natural labour xx
