im 40+3 weeks pregnant had a sweep this morning about 11.45 the midwife said my cervix was soft and stretchy and she could feel the babys head. I bled a little and have had a bit of backache and period pains since but thats about it. Was wondering how successful sweep are? have you had one and how long after did labour begin?

I had one with number 3 as I was due on the day of my AN appointment - baby arrived 12 hours later. However I have now had due date baby, due date minus one day and due date plus one day - so who knows - perhaps he was coming anyway!

Sounds promising though - good luck!

sorry logan. I was 40+15 by the time I was eventually indiced with ds.
This time I will be begging for an induction at 40+0 grin

I had one with dd and she turned up the next day, but that was 2nd attempt as cervix wasn't ready 1st time.

Also had one with ds and he came next day too smile

Yours all sounds very promising though as I think it very much depends how favourable things down there are!!

Good luck, have fingers crossed for you grin

I had one that did nothing. DD had to be evicted/induced at 40+12!

But saying that MW did say I was unfavourable. Sounds like you may be ready to roll!! Good Luck
