Not dilated but had a sweep!!! Experiences?


Well I went to MW other day who told me they could only do one sweep, and was booked in a week overdue. Long story short I've just had to see another MW who offered me one and said that wasn't true you can do more then one, so she did a membrane sweep, and told me I wasn't dilated at all at 40+1!

Feeling deflated...thought I would have been a little, and felt positive until then.

Anyone had a sweep and not dilated? and did it work?

It worked for me when I had my daughter but I was dilated when I had it done.

Were you dilated when you had your sweeps done?

I just can't believe I'm not even dilated at all!

My first baby, the mw tried to do one but said i wasn't dilated enough. Baby was born 4 or 5 days later.

Second baby, mw did one at 41+4, when i was 2 cm dilated. That one worked well and i went into labor that evening.

This time My Dr did one for me at 38+5 when i was 1 cm dilated (i didn't ask for one, she just did it after checking dilation) Didn't work though, I'm still pregnant lol. I think i will be asking for another in a few days at my next appointment, if I'm still pregnant at that point.
