I'll be 40+3 tomorrow at my appointment, and my midwife is going to sweep my membranes. Did it work for you?

Nope...my midwife tried at 39, 40, and 41 weeks with my oldest, and the stubborn little mister didn't budge until 42+3, 36 hours of labor and a c-section.



Pretty sure he'd brought like a couch, tv, and microwave along with him in there though. He was fuckin' comfy.

I'm fighting tooth and nail for my water birth. Lol part of me just wants it to be over, but the other part can't let go of the birth I've always wanted. It sucks a hard one.
