Hi had a sweep today don’t think it will do much as I don’t think it was a favourable one considering what she wrote in my notes has anyone else had a sweep like this and it still do something? I’m having another Wednesday hoping it will help start things off smile

It does look that you weren’t very ‘favourable’ however it may help things start niggling away!
I had a few sweeps with my first only one worker which was when I was in labour she stretched and promptly broke my waters!

You’ll find stories on here tho that woman who weren’t ‘ready’ ended up going into labour. So you never know!

Good luck keep active if you can!

I had Braxton Hicks in the Saturday morning, a sweep on Sunday evening and that did start off my contractions for me. Although, I had a pretty dragged out latent phase of labour and didn't go into active labour until the Wednesday! I finally gave birth on the Thursday morning. It was my first baby too, so I wasn't expecting much from the sweep, but did start something going...

Had another sweep today, I was 1.5cm and she wrote medium 1.5cm long and I’ve lost a little bit of show got a bit of back ache wondering if anything’s gonna happen
