Membrane sweep then mucous plug?

I had a membrane sweep on Monday. I am now 40 + 5. I think I have just lost my mucuous plug.

Does this mean anything? (crosses fingers...)

I know you can lose your mucous plug weeks before labour begins but if you lose it after a sweep, is it more favourable?

I am wishing and praying as induction is booked in for Tuesday. Are there any knowledgeable or experienced Mumsnetters out there who can advise?

it means that thins are moving, but you can't say how quickly.....
if it's bloody that's a better sign than if it's greenish....

I am racing too since got induction booked for Sunday (will be +13)

I'm horribly tight and uncomfortable since my sweep this afternoon, but it's not contractions as such....

Yes the sweep left me feeling bruised and uncomfortable afterwards. Having it done was OK but after effects aren't great.

I really hope something is happening. Not having contractions yet. Doing some housework in the hope that that will kick start something - it is just knackering me out though!

I hope things progress for you before the weekend Nagoo
