I had my very first sweep this morning which was more painful than expected due to my mw having to pull my cervix forward to be able to perform the sweep. She said my cervix was soft and about 1cm dilated. It was over very quickly but I bled bright red blood a little too much for her liking after. I had a 15 min walk home and she said the walk may worsen the bleeding a bit which it did and there was enough to fill a light towel with a 5p size piece of tissue when I got home. Having some period like cramping now and quite strong bh but I'm still spotting bright red now when my mw said it should be turning pink/brown by now and if it's still bright red in another hour to call delivery. Would appreciate anyone letting me know their experience of bleeding after a sweep xxx.
