Hi
I am 40+1 today. The bubs is head down but only at pelvic brim. I have tried to feel my cervix and its so high I can't even get to it! What are the chances of things changing in the next 11 days before I would be induced, not sure how quickly things can progress? Can I still go into labour with a high head and unripe cervix?
Also is it possible to do a membrane sweep on everyone - what if cervix is tighly closed?
Thanks for your help!

Hi

things can happen very quickly or slowly, its really hard to tell. I remember palpating my sons head and he wasn't engaged at all but 2 hrs later my water broke and 12 hrs later I was a mum, so you never know.

If your cervix is really high and posterior (towards your back) then sometimes a sweep is hard to do but most are achievable.

Take care x

Thanks Oink!
I've seen my consultant this morning and he thinks the head is well down - only 1/5 palpable so am feeling alot more optimistic!
