I'm hoping it works but really don't want to get my hopes up.
I'm pleased sweeps have worked early for others.
I had a sweep on my due date with DD and she was born 3days later.
I'm in two minds whether to go to bed to try and have some sleep (when the contractions started with DD I ended up with no sleep for 3nights and by the time I got some sleep it was when DD was 4days old through the PN ward then DD thinking night was day) or go and bounce on my ball.
I had a sweep at 38+6 and ds was born within 24 hours. I think it depends on if your ready AND how aggressive the sweep was. With my DD I had sweeps and they didn't really work, but I left each one feeling as if they hadn't really done anything... whereas when I had the sweep with DS my god it hurt! Sounds like things are happening for you... go run around the house to speed them up!
PS I hadn't had a show or any sign of labour and privately thought it wouldn't have any effect. Therefore I did not pack my bag or any such practical things and ended up doing this in the throes of contraction . Fun memories! Be prepared for worst (best?) case scenario.
It worked on me at 37+5, labour started 36 hours later and ds was born 6 hours later. I was also due to be induced at 38+3 (first labour was fast and we live 90 minutes away from the hospital). My biggest fear was that we wouldn't make it to the hospital (and most importantly: pain relief!) but we did and ds was perfect if maybe a little grumpy at being evicted before his time
