    Hello all,
    Just got back from the hospital, 3 days over and my consultant gave me a sweep! Not pleasant!
    Just wondering, anyone with previous experience, how long did it take to 'work'? anyone had one and it not 'worked'? Need details!!!
    I've got period type pains and have had them every since, not show or anything yet though.
    And if we cant get her out this way I've got an induction date of the 29th April!!
    Slightly panicing now!! hehe

    If its going to work hun it will work within 72 hours. I had bad pains for about 5 hours after my sweep but then they went and i lost some of my plug the day after but thats it :(

    I hope it works for you! x

    Oooo good luck!

    I was already in early labour when i had my sweep. Was 2cm & having contractions every 10mins. Had sweep to get things going quicker at 1.30pm as i had pre eclampsia, by 4pm i was 4cm & 8.30pm 10cm, waters went & ready to push!

    Hope it gets things moving for you.

    I had two sweeps with DS #1 and neither one worked. I was not dilated, and he had not dropped etc. when my induction started at 41 weeks. He was very stubborn :p
