Labour & birth

I am now overdue with my first baby.. I had a sweep last week which did nothing and have another booked for Friday.
All through my pregnancy, I have not had any Braxton Hicks or twinges etc.. Do you think this means I am more likely to be induced?
Has anyone gone into labour naturally with also having had no BH?

Hi I was the same, sweeps did nothing! Had a braxton hicks but they wasnt painful, just felt like my belly was tight for a few seconds! I was induced early for preeclampsia and had him 4 days early. While being induced they use a bishop chart to asses your cervix for your waters breaking, my cervix was high hard and anterior, so as far from favourable as you can get! So I would have gone over due for sure! What did midwife say about your cervix When she did a sweep? If you don't know it will be in your maternity notes get walking and bouncing on a birthing ball lol my little one is 17months old now, feels like a life time ago that I gave birth lol

Gen3, how you doing today?

Awww Still nothing today! I have another sweep booked tomorrow so hopefully that will work, last time she did say my cervix was low, soft and 1cm dilated so I am hoping I will have progressed some more and this time it will work!

Yes she has arrived, I went into labour at 3am Saturday morning, 30 hours later and 8cm dilated I was taken for an emergency c section, she was born 10am Sunday she was a whopper at 9lb5 lol..
