They tried to sweep me from 37 weeks but my cervix wasn't open/favourable so they couldn't. They did manage a tiny one at 38+something but it did nothing. He was born at 39+4 by emcs after failed induction.

I was swept at 37 weeks, I was being induced at 38 weeks but went into labour early. This was because Molly was over 10lbs at 34 weeks. However she was born 8lbs8!!! who knows if the sweep helped but worth a try. In answer they will
Induce due to size x

I was induced at 39+5 with S due to his size so not overly early but they were happy to not let me go over my dates. I had labour anxieties too though so begged for induction

No im not sure id want to be induced either, I just forgot to ask if they ever do. I want a water birth and that would obviously be off the tabke with induction. Saying that my spd is more crippling by the day so ive no idea howill feel in a few weeks.

My first was 9,6 and I had a really rough time.this time I had a growth scan every week from 35 weeks was told baby was but they wouldn't induce me early due to size but would do sweep at 39 weeks.they didn't do the sweep in the end but booked me for an induction on my due date as didn't want me to go over.mybwaters went at 39+3,went into spontaneous labour the next day,popped him out in 3 hours,great labour and he was 8,4!!
