    That's what I do IndogoJ I'll be seeing my dr this week but next week will be with the midwife. I'm really hoping he doesn't come too late, as mum is coming down for only two weeks :S I wonder if genetics have anything to do with labour, as all us three kids were exactly on our due dates, and my mum and uncle were as well (according to my Grandma) so hopefully I'll be as lucky as them

    Good Luck I dont know if genetics has a part to play. First babies are usually late though. My mum had both of her kids late (10-12days late) and i had both of mine 9days over.

    I have my fingers crossed for you

    Default Stretch and Sweep

    Mine was done at 40 + 5 which didn't work then 40 + 7 which started contractions slowly over the next few days didn't hurt at all but I was already thinning out and dilated 1cm.

    I had one a week between 36 and 40 weeks (he was born spontaneously at 40+3) obviously they did nothing even though I was 3-4 cm dilated the whole time! Knowing what I know now I would not risk it again.

    I had one with ds2 on my edd at my appt at the hospital. A doctor did mine. For me it was a fair bit of pressure. Like a pap smear but more uncomfortable and a little (again, little) bit of pain. That was at 2.30, went home and was back at hospital by 7.45pm and he was born at 9.35pm. I begged for them to kick start my labour as I was having horrible hip pain. I do think it was worth it for me. I hope everything goes well for you :-)

    I had one with ds3 at 40w at 9:30am. Waters broke at 7 pm. And labour started. Had him next morning at 9:35am. I was booked in to have the gel that night but as my waters broke they couldn't do that.

    Default Stretch and Sweep

    It was at about 4pm on my due date. Was unpleasant but not painful. I went into labour at 11pm that night and DD was born at 7am the next morning

    I had one at 39+5 with DD2, less than 24 hours later I lost my mucus plug and was having irregular contractions and then went into labour within 36 hours after having the Stretch and sweep. I had already started to dilate and thin and cervix was in a good position.
    im currently 38 weeks and next week at my 39 week appointment my midwife is going to do a stretch and sweep to hopefully help things along I'm so excited!
    it was more uncomfortable than painful.

    My ob did one unknowingly at 36 weeks. I was due to be induced that afternoon anyway due to HELLP Syndrome. Was a little uncomfortable but fine. It triggered something in me because an hour later i was so sick and the pain kicked in.
