Is this normal after a sweep or could things be starting? The pains were every 3 or 4 minutes and kept me awake until 5ish when they just stopped. I am still getting some mild achy feelings though.

Just a bit confused by the nausea and vomitting now!

Sounds promising...keep active in the day and see if you can get things started, but maybe take a sleep if nothing happens that soon, just to get a break before the fun starts. With DD#2 the first I knew of being in labour was to wake up and be sick.

I haven't much experience of this, but I have heard it mentioned that a woman will often get sick at the start of labour, its the body's way of clearing out everything to make it easier for you to labour. Same goes with the, err, other end. If you are at all worried though, call your MW.
Good luck!

well, spent hours in labour ward with strong but very irregular contractions. But nothing happening and they tailed off so was sent home again sad

Midwife said that having a sweep can do this, give you lots of pain but not real labour

I am being induced on the 11th if nothing happens before hand so only a week left at the most.

im in exactly the same boat as you memoo had sweep tuesday been having irregular contractions since and still wiping away bloody show each time i go to the loo (sorry not nice i know) but nothing else has happened. phoned the midwife yesterday and she said the same as yours go up to the hospital so glad i didnt now cos after an uncomfortable night of backache and irregular contractions im still here waiting with nothing happening !! oh well going out for lunch soon with my daughter so i expect ill just sit down to eat and start getting contractions just my luck lol.

hi loganberry, I've been having that bloody show when wiping.

I've had no contractions at all today so looks like everything has stopped.

Hope you had a nice lunch, actually scrap that, hope you did sit down and then find yourself in labour and you're now in greeting your new baby!

had lunch quite uncomfortable still but nothing worth reporting feel really bruised and sore underneath and keep having to go to wee hope i get some sleep tonight last night was terrible!anything happening with you memoo?

memoo Fri 04-Sep-09 23:54:08

nah nothing happening here either. Went to bed at 10 but got back up because can't sleep due to very wriggly baby and needing the loo every 10 minutes.

Lets hope having to wee lots is a sign of impending labour!

memoo Sun 06-Sep-09 16:16:57

hello, nothing happening here. Quite glad today really as Dh is man nesting and has decided to paint the hall which in my very hormonal state has caused me great stress!

How nice a birthday present would that be logan!
