I had a sweep with my 2nd but it didn't work.

I have a date for my current (3rd) baby booked and I wondered, for those of you who had a sweep that worked- how long after it did you give birth?

I had sweep with my second at 11am and I gave birth at 7:30 pm.

I had a sweep at 10 days overdue with my first. Midwife was very dismissive of my chances of going into labour but I had DS the very next day.

I was due on the Sunday. I'd been having contractions for 4 days (since the Tuesday), so 40+2. I had the sweep at 3pm on the Friday - 40+5. I went to the hospital Friday evening, was in the birth centre from 9pm. The midwife broke my waters at 3am. My lo was born at 6.58am on the Saturday morning, at 40+6.

I had a sweep on the Saturday afternoon. Thought it was all systems go but I when I went to hospital I was 3cm. I went home and everything stopped. Midwife came on the Monday and said she couldn't do a sweep as my waters were bulging, DD was born at 7 am Tuesday

I had a sweep with my second at 10.30am, went into labour on the way home and DD was born 21 hours later.

With my first two they worked, the same day/night I went into labour. Had a sweep this Wednesday, didn't work and I'm having another today. Really hoping it works, I'm fed up!!!!

Had a sweep at my 41 week appointment, waters went that night and finally had DS 26 hours later. Good luck, hope things get moving for you soon!

4pm. Gave birth around 5 am. I was 10 days past my due date then.

Thereshegoesagain Sun 19-Feb-17 07:51:43

10 days over. Had sweep, 2 hours later a big contraction and a baby 8 hours later.

lalalemon Sun 19-Feb-17 07:57:43

I had a sweep at 2.30pm, started having contractions at 6.30pm, baby arrived at 1.30pm the next day!
Wasn't dilated at all when I had the sweep done but my cervix was soft!

lalalemon Sun 19-Feb-17 07:59:21

Oh and baby was born on due date in the end, had early sweep because my blood pressure had been really high for 3 weeks! Went down as soon as baby was born!

MillieMoodle Sun 19-Feb-17 08:30:51

With DS1 I had two attempted sweeps, neither could be done as cervix very posterior. I was induced.

With DS2 I had an attempted sweep at 40+5, the midwife couldn't do it as cervix was very posterior but was soft. Had another at 40+9, again she couldn't do it as cervix was very posterior but soft. That was at 2.30pm. Contractions started at 6pm and he was born at 2.40am that night.

Mouthfulofquiz Sun 19-Feb-17 08:35:26

I had a very good seeep at 11am when I was 40+10 and I had the baby at around midnight. I was determined not to be induced!

maybefallingapart Sun 19-Feb-17 08:38:48

Had sweep at 2pm and she finally arrived at 6ish the next morning. Would have been a good few hours sooner but she was back to back and huge and labour didn't progress as quickly because she wasn't in the right place. No intervention needed just a bit extra waiting while trying to shift her off my poor spine!!
