    So had a sweep I was 3.5 cm not effaced.

    Now I have contractions about 4 mins apart but they don't hurt that much. Thoughts?

    Could be early labour, if you can., try and ignore it as much as possible, until you can't ignore it. I had a really long early labour following a sweep and I was so exhausted as I didn't get any rest as I was sure it was it and I was gonna have baby any moment! It was 4 days later that I had him! I know that's particularly long so don't worry about that too much, but do try and rest if you can.

    That's good advice. I will try to remember that myself:)

    Had him at 449 am. Wasn't a bad labor. Came in a around 8 pm with mild pain. Got epidural at 6 cm before I started suffering. Only pushed like 5 min didn't feel a thing!
    Worst part was the anticipation of the epidural and funny feeling legs.

    But I feel pretty good now - no serious tearing.

    Thanks for the good wishes ladies
