One day overdue

I went for a check-up this morning at the hospital...treatment wasn't very good today..some weird indian doctor checked me, told me to follow him and then basically ignored us for a long time..until one of the midwives asked me what happened?. Apparently the doctor passed my file over to another doctor without even telling me..he was already seeing other patients..what the..??

anyways the other doctor made an appointment for me to be induced on the 29th Jan, 10 days overdue, assuming i still haven't popped. Then she sent me over to the labour ward, to have a 'membrane sweep'.

the membrane sweep is basically similar to a V.E. (vaginal exam), where they sweep the neck of your uterus (cervix) to stimulate natural labour.

I had a long wait at the labour wards, and Adam wasn't allowed in the labour ward...so he and Daddy had to go home..while waiting I heard screaming from the labour rooms..waaa...takutnya...huhu...

One of the midwives performed the membrane sweep. To those of you who have had a VE before...well, it's just as painful and uncomfortable...except more because it takes longer because she has to twist and turn her hands in there to 'stretch' it...eugh...

she said it felt like i'm ready for labour...and that she would be very disappointed if i don't go into labour before my induction date (29 Jan). She said after a membrane sweep, natural labour may occur within the next 24 hours...but it doesn't work for everyone.

many hours after the sweep now...well i have had a some contractions..but not so intense or frequent...and there is a permanent crampy feeling...so...i don't know..can't tell if it's gonna happen or not...i really hope i won't have to be induced... (plus i can't wait 10 days!!!)

Hopefully the sweep will bring on labour for you. I had a sweep done with DD2 when I was in labour as I was at 7cm for hours. Had it twice...first tak rasa apa as it was a junior midwife. I definitely felt the second as the midwife was very experienced. Baby was out in 40 minutes.

Sending labour vibes your way........
