40 +5 and the midwife offered me a sweep last night. Cervix posterior but was open.

Since then (and especially for several hours in the night where they were really regular) I have had bad period type cramps in my back and around the bottom of my bump. Also had a good show this morning.
Hoping these are all good signs??

I have been offered another sweep on Friday but these pains are putting me off!

Double check your hospital bag!

Exactly what happened to me. All tailed off for a bit, the next day baby by 3pm! Good luck!

All very normal! Sounds just what I was like! Good luck won't be long.
