    ok. i had my sweep 12 hours ago. i am 4 days overdue. had my sweep at 4.30pm yesterday. i am nearly 3cm dilated, fully engaged and nearly fully effaced (she said i had a cm to go). it is now 4.55 am and i have been having monthly type pains in my back since about 7 last night and theyre still going! i do get the occassional tightening in my pelvis, but NO contractions in my tummy what so ever... :wacko: could this be labour? i have also been having watery discharge since about 9 or 10 last night (which i have never had before) but it is definately not my waters...:shrug:
