    I had a sweep 2 hours ago, and nothing has changed...

    Just curious: How long after a sweep until you feel contractions/have a show/something happen?

    I had a sweep Monday afternoon. It's now Tuesday night and I haven't felt anything. Had no bleeding. Was 2-3cm favourable sweep.

    I lost my plug this afternoon and have been getting period-like cramps, so maybe it's working!!!

    sorry not officially in third tri till tomorrow but just saw this and had to reply!!

    with my first son i had a sweep at 37 weeks which was on the tuesday i began to lose my plug slowly after the sweep. i spent 2 days in slow labour - kept having mild contractions and then on the friday morning my waters broke at 4.30 am and stronger contractions started at 9am. my son arrived at 12.36 that night.

    i had been booked in for an induction the following tuesday just in case. i think it just depends on each individual case. been told may have to have one again this time as consultants not too keen to let me carry on on all the way but will see.

    Good luck hun and hopefully LO will get a wriggle on.xxx
