I'm 40+3 and had my second sweep yesterday. Immediately afterwards they listened to baby and commented how I was getting some tightenings, I had to have a ctg monitor for a while because baby's heart rate was high and had one big tightening while on it. Ever since I have been having them, very irregular, some hurt a little some are just uncomfortable. Has this happened to anyone else? And did they come to anything? I'm booked in to be induced on Wednesday but would really like him to come naturally
Had a sweep yesterday and midwife said I was almost fully effaced and 2cm dilated, had loads of tmi bleeding/mucus yesterday and today, and seriously strong tightenings and pain during last night which went away after 3 hrs and irregular tightenings today that so far havent come to anything... I'm booked in for induction on the 28th.
My midwife said the sweep can take about 48 hrs to work (if its going to work) but I think the tightenings are a good sign!!
Sorry i dont have any more experience to offer advice but good luck to you!! X
I had three seers with DD. The first did nothing. The second loosened the plug and I lost it the next day and had loads of Braxton Hicks. The third set it all off. I went into labour about 24hrs later really suddenly. Good luck. If you've got tightening then it won't be too long. I was booked in for induction the day after I finally went into labour but I never got there. Xxx
