My 38 week appointment is today at 2, and since I was dialated and 50% effaced last week, he said this week we would do a stretch and sweep to see if we can start labour!

I have been having A TON of labour symptoms in the past few days. Period-like cramping, contractions on and off, MAJOR vag pressure every time I stand, and the worst is back pain that just will not go away no matter what I do!

So I am REALLY thinking that I will be dialated at least another cm or two before he starts the sweep, then once he does it I hope real labour starts!

I had a s&s done with my DD at 38 weeks 4 days, and I had her on 38 weeks 6 days. This time I am 38 weeks 3 days! I'm very optimistic!

Though I have to say I am a little more nervous this time! Last time when I went in for my apt I didn't even know what a sweep was, he just asked me if I wanted the baby out and I said yes, and he did it right there and then. I didn't think it hurt at the time, it was just uncomfortable. Now I've heard EVERYBODY say how painful it is, so I'm afraid it will hurt this time haha

Anyway... wish me luck! I will update after my appointment this afternoon!!!

Thanks ladies!!! Stretched to 3 cms now, but he said he didn't know if it would work or not because my cervix is in the "in between" stage of being favorable or not lol It didn't hurt at all though, so I don't mind if we tried and nothing happens!

My bp was high, so I need to go to l&d tomorrow for a recheck. I have no idea what happens if it's still high. Guess we'll see tomorrow!

Blood pressure was totally normal this morning Did a NST and baby was content as could be in my belly! I didn't have any contractions all night long. Had some pink spotting but dr said that was totally normal.

This morning I woke up also feeling fine. No more spotting, cramping gone, feeling like a million bucks!

Now since lunch (about an hour ago) I have had two HUGE globs of brown mucous, and then one after those two that was smaller but was more red than brown. Every time I wipe, more comes out. I don't know how much is normal, but I am thinking it is my plug coming out! Same thing happened the day after my sweep with DD.

My back is also starting to go again, so hopefully things will keep moving along
