This coming Thursday I will be 39 weeks pregnant (baby no.1). The midwife said at my appointment last week that i will be offered a stretch and sweep if I would like one and that they have a 50% chance of working within 24-48 hours.
I was wondering what everyones experiences were with this. Is it really that successful? Is it worth the pain/discomfort? Is the discomfort comparable to a papsmear or worse? and is there any pain afterwards?
Apparently baby is engaged but i dont think ive felt any braxton hicks at all! So i dont think he has any intention of coming out soon...
Thanks in advance!
