Its my due date tomorrow and i had a stretch and sweep today and midwife said my waters are bulging and im 2cm dilated. What are my chances of going into labour soon?

Anyone ?

Well I'm going in for sweep number 3 tomorrow, have been 2-3 cm dilated since 41 weeks, now 41 + 4 and no labour!

Is it your first baby? 2cm for your first is good, but it's normal to be a bit dilated for subsequent pregnancies, so not necessarily an indication of imminent labour

Yes its my first baby, midwife said it was a very good sweep

Did she say if your cervix was far back?
The further forward it is the best, I think.
if she can feel your waters then that's good, get bouncing on a ball (if u have 1), have sex!
Try all the normal things ppl say to do lol
I think laughing actually made my waters break!
Good luck smile

Sounds similar to my first, didn't work for me, son was induced at +14. Hope it works for you though x
