Hi I have this morning had a stretch and sweep. My cervix today was 2 cm dilated and effaced which is good cos last week it was tightly shut. My doc said she was particularly agressive with it, and as such I have been bleeding since. My doc said it was 'favourable' however I was induced on both previous pregnancies so am not sure its goin to work. Failing this, I am booked i for a c section next Thurs (30th). They have refused to induce cos of complications - shoulder distocia with my 2nd... Does anyone have any idea how long a sweep tends to take if its going to work????
