    Hi ladies,

    Not sure of the % of successful sweeps, but I had 2 with my son, and neither worked :( I had one last Wednesday, and nothing. Well, I've lost my plug and had what I'm sure is a bloody show over the last few days, but nothing else.... I guess my uterus is just that comfy!!

    Nope, nothing. Well, I've been having BH, but that's it!! I know girls who have gone into labor hours after their sweeps though!!! Honestly, I think my babes would spend their whole lives in my belly if they could!!! haha!!!!

    Did you have a sweep done?? I remember being crampy for about a day after my sweep.

    I hope it works for you!!!!! xx

    With my 1st son I was having some cramping, went to the doctor lunch time Thursday (41 weeks), she did a sweep, everything got stronger so went to the hospital 11am Friday morning and had my son 2am Sat! Totally worked for me although apparently I was already 2cm dilated when I went to see my doc, so not sure if that helped?

    Hi I'm hoping for a sweep today, got the doctors at 11.00. Just want this little one out now. Have been having tummy cramps alnight but sure they are not contractions as it is constant pain, When I walk or move. It's ok when I lie still. Iv heard that a sweep can work well if your already on the way. Let's hope we get some success today and go into full blown labour. X

    Will get induced a week today if nothing happens before tho! Woohoo!! (due to high bp!)
