I can't believe it's August! And I'm 37 weeks today. Unfortunately I also got a cold since yesterday so that kinda sucks. I suppose I should wash some of bubbas stuff, like bedding and clothes other than those that I needed to pack in the hospital bag lol. We put the bassinet in our room on Monday, seems so weird to think there will be a bubba using it soon.

Hi ladies! I am 40+2 today and am completely over it!!
Had an appointment on Monday (my due date) and they tried to do a stretch and sweep but couldn't. I am going in for some monitoring on Friday if bub still isn't here. Booked in to be induced next Wednesday.
I have moments where I am ok and think 10 days isn't too long in the grand scheme of things then there are other moments where I get so down and just want my bub out!
I know he/she will come when they're ready

Great to see some action in this group. I'm 37+1 and feeling pretty good. Not desperate to get this baby out yet.
Looks like lots of the bubs have been born already, were lots of people early?
Best of luck to everyone

I just had a middie appointment and all was great measuring spot on, my iron levels and vitamin d levels are back up where they should be, blood pressure all good, urine all good and heart rate perfect. Yay! Baby is still engaged (which I already knew) so now just to wait out these last couple of weeks

Hi @NicErin quick question. Was it very uncomfortable when they tried to do a stretch and sweep? My OB mentioned she can try one next week if no baby by then, and I know that if it works there is more pain to come, but I'm still a bit apprehensive about the discomfort of it!

As Green Cheese said it was uncomfortable. I think what made it worse was that my body hadn't started getting ready for labour so it harder for the midwife to find the places she needed to. This meant she couldn't actually do the full procedure. I figured labour was going to hurt more and at the moment I'm happy to try anything that might help get this baby out! Lol!
Apparently you can ask for some of the gas while they do the stretch and sweep if you want, this might be an option if you're worried? Good luck!
