    Did you get any cramping after? And if so how soon after? Because MW said i should have a sleepless night tonight with bad cramps! And so far havent had a thing!! I had my sweep about 10.10am!! Also those of you who have one, did it work? I'm starting to think my body and baby are just being stubborn!! :hissy::hissy:

    My last one didnt give me much in the way of cramps. No show - bugger all!! Then as you know the waters went at 4am.... I honestly think it was because I'd pretty much given up hope of starting on my own.....that and the mega hard shag I had.....

    Hi Hon- as you know I had one yesterday- the cramps were soooo bad last night- worse than what I had been experiancing the previous week and I still had a bit of brownish blood today.
    However when the MW was explaining the pros and cons she said it MAY cause cramps/pain afterwards- so don't worry if you haven't had any- did you get any blood?

    However i'm still here today- not sure how quickly they are meant to work, but the little blood I had today was mucusy (TMI) so i'm not sure if it's moved my plug.

    Fingers crossed for you Tone & Donna, I had a sweep at 4.30 today & I dont feel anything yet. I've already lost my plug though, hoovering the stairs on my hands & knees :dohh:

    Hopefully all our babies will be here soon


    Baby dust for us :dust:
