So, I had my 39 week appt last night. I asked for the sweep, and was told they only really do them at 39/40 weeks. I told her - 'I am 39 weeks today' I honestly don't understand what the hesitation is and why I'm continually being told its done at a later time. Plus, on top of that, if I make it to 40 weeks, they make me do a NST at the appt. Doesn't that seem odd? After she told me then do them at 39/40 weeks, I told her that I had a sweep done at 38w5d last pregnancy and went right into labor. She said she would do one, but I'm not sure she actually did. Is a sweep any different than her just stretching me 'a little'. She literally said 'You might have some spotting because I stretched you a little' Is that the same as a sweep?? It didn't seem like she did very much. Last pregnancy when I had the sweep done, it took longer and the doc seemed to actually be doing something. This time I just thought she was checking me since it wasn't really much longer than a usual check. I thought I was starting to have contractions and slept awful last night, but I don't seem to be having much of anything this morning. I'm so bummed and so not really thrilled with my doctors office.
