    I had one yesterday and it hurt badly. I had 2 previous pregnancy and they were uncomfortable but not painful. I think it depends who does it or something.

    Boo Mabv, maybe some contractions will start up soon :)

    Thanks. I'm so upset by the thought of induction bc I wanted a natural birth at their birthing center. If I get induced ill likely get pitocin and have to be on land d unit.

    Yea I understand, I'm planning 2nd vbac waterbirth which is why I agreed to a sweep. I would go for a long walk, maybe somewhere that has stairs as that's what my doula said. Maybe grab oh from some cuddles and orgasms too ;) Will they give you a 2nd sweep before scheduling an induction?
