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?

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
