Yeah thats the problem with my old favourite name of Thomas. I only like Thomas - not Tom, Tommy or Tommo. Just plain Thomas but everyone shortens it. My DH's fav for a boy is Jonny. Not sure about it but in that case I wouldn't mind them shortening it to Jon. My all-time no 1 for a girl is Rebekkah Louize. I love that name and its my name for a daughter. I wouldn't mind too much if they shortened it as long as they spelt REBEKKAH.

Trouble is names are a personal thing and people think they can criticise your choice but don't like when you criticise theirs.

It's funny, my sister's boys have all had their names shortened now. When they were born she swore no one would do that!! The girls name we like will probably be shortened from birth.

I think it's all a personal choice anyway. :D

I am in a dont give a sh*t about anything mood today.

I just wish i knew how long i had to wait.

I have decided, if she not arrived by my next midwife appt which is next thursday I am going to defo arrange for an induction and if midwife examines me next thursday see if she can do a sweep then too. So then may not need an induction.

lol
reminds me of when my cousins were born. I clearly remember my uncle saying "Her name is Wendy-Lee, not Wendy or Lee" when the first was born. Of course she was called Wendy just a few minutes later and that is what she stayed. So when the second was born they chose Kim as then it could not get shortened. Naturally she was (and still is) called Kimberly... :D

I've had one hunni - it's basically an internal exam, that feels a bit uncomfortable and yes if I'm honest a little painful. It's over in less than a minute though so a few deep breaths will see you through.

Good luck - it normally starts labour !!

A membrane sweep is basically an vaginal examination, where the midwife will try and feel for the cervix, and gently circle her fingers between the edge of the cervix and the bag of amniotic fliud. It's aim is to stimulate production of natural chemicals to kick start labour to reduce the need to be induced.
can be very effective.

To be honest, what with going through IVF and having lots of different things and fingers up there(!) its probably not going to be that bad!

It was no worse than a smear for me, of course everyones pain threshold is different which is why no-one can guarantee it won't be uncomfortable :smile:

If it is over in less than a minute and could get you started I say go for it!! :happy:
