2 nights ago I had to go in to hospital again with close contractions lasting well over a minute being 4-5mins apart over a spell of 2hours but had been irregular for 4hrs prior. I was told to stay home but started to shout down the phone as I was in a lot of pain and they agreed to see me.
When I was there they gave me an internal exam and said that I'm close to 2cm but still had some length to lose on the cervix aswell. Midwife gave me a cheeky sweep while she was in that region anyway and then gave me some codeine so I could cope better. Since then I've had dull back ache in my lower back and a constant period cramp. I also had some pink stainage yesterday but thats stopped now. Is this all normal after a sweep? I've another booked with the community midwife this friday. Hoping that kick starts everything because I really do not want to face another potential 2weeks of this pain and not being able to be comfortable. I think I could live in a permanent tepid bath right now...
As always, I bow down to all ur superior knowledge and wealth of experience xx
