So I am 40+2 with my 3rd baby and I have an appointment with my midwife tomorrow. At my appointment last week she mentioned that at my appointment tomorrow if I haven't had Bub she could do a s&s if I wanted but it was up to me.
I've never had one pre labour (the midwife did a bit of a stretch when I arrived at hospital in labour with DS1 but I was already in established labour and waters had ruptured 12 hours prior).
DS1 was born 40+4 but was a long labour that basically started at 40+2, DS2 was born 40+1 with a much shorter labour.
I'm not overly worried, just a little over being pregnant, I do know that he will arrive in due course. I'm also drinking loads of RLT, using some clarry sage oil to massage on my belly and using EPO. I'm not stressing over doing these things, just more I figure I may aswell do something.
So my question is, would you get a s&s or not? She mentioned the slight risk of membranes rupturing but hadn't mentioned any other risks so I'm more just curious to any reasons why you wouldn't.
Also been getting lots and lots of prelabour for a week now so I am quite hopeful that when things properly kick off it won't be to long and drawn out.
