What did you do after membrane sweep?


In a few hours I am having my membranes stripped and I was planning on walking the mall with my sister to see if that helps anything.

Did you walk/dtd/bounce on a ball or did you go home and rest in case you needed your energy if the sweep was successful?

Also, do you think your method worked?

Keep as active as you can, you will get cramps and bits come out afterwards so make sure you wear a pad and think about some paracetamol x

After my first I walked, went for lunch and walked some more. Bounced on the ball and DTD that evening. Nothing happened- no cramps, no bleeding/plug, nothing.
After my 2nd sweep I walked and bounced some more, also DTD. No cramps or anything but I lost some of my plug the next day. My sweeps didn't work but I'll be getting them again if I go overdue just in case!

I had a sweep with my 2nd DS...DR said he didn't think it would work as I was still only 1cm...I went home and bounced on my ball all evening while watching tv....next morning at 7am my water broke.

Keep moving as much as you can, my husband makes jokes about no need for a ball when you can bounce on me which I haven't been able to as my legs hurt when I lean on them but fingers crossed it works for you
