    Was admitted to hospital overnight last night, due to high bp and
    trace protein in urine.

    Today i was given a sweep and sent home, got to go in again tomorrow
    for more monitoring, unless labour begins between now and then.

    Just wanted to know, those of you who had sweeps in previous
    pregnancies, did it make you go into labour and how long did
    it take after sweep until proper contractions??

    Sweep made me bleed a little and ive had niggly period type
    pains since then (had it at around 12 midday, its now almost 4pm)

    Midwife said baby's head is very low down. Dont know if thats a
    sign of anything. x

    This is my 1st so I don't really have any advice either.

    Why don't you try DTD and taking a long walk to see if that can expedite things as well?

    lots of labor :dust: to ya hun...and of course keep us updated.
