    Rainbow I think its more likely a urine infection but i can hope its baby related :-) ha ha

    I am due to see a consultant on monday ( again my wishes ) when i will be 40+2 to talk about what will hapen if i get to 42 weeks - what my options are as i can not be induced with pitocin due to an allergy. I want to know if they can do ARM and then send me home but i think not !!
    Really hoping baby makes an appearance before hand as really want another homebirth.

    I will ask for a sweep on Monday atthe 40+2 app even though i obviously dont "want" one Im willing to do anything that "might" help. I am then due to see my moidwife at 40+5 so will get her to do one too and hopefully at some point in week 41 we will have a baby :-) If not 41+5 will be last midwife app so i will request another one then and hope that by 42 weeks its out !!

    Mum23, I'm in Canada and I was "induced" by ARM in my home. My midwife came over in the morning, broke my bag and then sat with us and drank tea and ate banana loaf. ARM was VERY effective for me, Maggie was here almost 3 hours later and I was so very glad that I didn't have to endure any of the awful effects of Pitocin. Not sure how different the policies are where you live, but I hope you can get ARM and then head home to wait in the peace and quiet of your own space. Good luck!

I hope its not thats all i need right now !!

    Well looking at my notes and the 3 different dates that the midwife has in there I am today either 3 days overdue, 1 day overdue or due in 2 days time so at the most i have 16 days left - I really hope its sooner though since i commited to going back to work so soon HOPING baby would be here on time - if it comes 2 weeks late i will literally have 2-3 weeks off :-( Unless of course I win the lottery :-)

    How is everyone else feeling at the moment ?
    i had this a few days before and the protein thing tues before she was born, my show started on the fri midwife said that was why levels were high

    if they do an ARM they will want to keep you/baby in for monitoring I guess as it still counts as induction... but fingers crossed that would work if they did it. The risk of ARM is that it might not actually start labour, in which case they'd be committing you to more intervention or infection risk... (I had quite a bit of discussion about this last pregnancy too). Saying that, you could always discharge yourself if you were desperate to leave lol. A sweep did the trick for me with DS2, started contractions instantly!

    not too long now for you, though.
