I am 39+6 today. I had a sweep yesterday at 10:30 followed by some cramping overnight. I lost my mucus plug at about 11:00am this morning. Does this mean labour is imminent? X

I should also mention that this is my first pregnancy x

Well certainly within the next 2 weeks and 1 day. But yeah, its all really good signs.

Thank you, I was kind of hoping people would let me know how long it took for them to go into labour after having a show. X

I went into labour 12 hours after mine, I kept getting loss/bloody mucus, Good luck home baby arrives safely.

At least a week after my show with dc1. About 2 hours after my sweep with dc2.

Obviously it's different for everyone but with my first I had a sweep on my due date, random pains for the next two days and then had him at 40+3
With my second I had my sweep at 40+2, went into established labour late next evening and he was born at just after midnight at 40+4. He's 9 days old and currently snoozing away next to me grin

2 days after with my first, 1 day after with my second. Didn't have a sweep though.

My labour started on my due date with light cramps and my mucus plug coming away, and it carried on for the 48 hours I was in early labour. I had my baby 5 days after it started, but she was OP presentation (back to back) so I had an unusually long labour!

I lost my mucous plug on Monday...

Had a sweep on Thursday, everything looking great, 2cm dilated and cervix very soft.

Bloody show Friday

Now 41+1 and nothing other than intermittent period cramps and BHs. Booked for induction on Wednesday and feeling pretty sad about that.

Had a sweep on my due date in the afternoon and was 1 cm dilated, the midwife made me almost 2cm dilated, went into labour that night and had my ds the following night.
