    40 wks 5 days I had a sweep on a Wed, went into labor hours after, hard labor the next day, and delivered on a Friday.

    Here they will sweep you at 38 wks! I think thats weird.

    I think it's wrong that it differs depending on where you live. I'll get my 1st sweep at 40 weeks (if my cervix etc favourable of course)

    With DD1 I had a sweep on the Wednesday lunchtime (at 38+5) and she was born on the Friday evening (at 39 weeks). So it worked for me!

    (The reason I had an early sweep was because I was measuring small and the consultant was concerned the baby wasn't healthy. She came out small but perfect.)

    my dr. offered to do it today but I just opted for an internal exam (just to know what was going on) glad I didn't do it because I am only 1cm and 40% and the external exam hurt afterwards! i'm still crampy feeling, she said the sweep probably would have been pretty painful and that next appt. she would try

    I had a sweep at 38+6 weeks, started contracting a few hours later, then finally gave birth two days later. What's funny is the doctor that did it told me that it didn't really work that well... :)

    I've heard you can do it yourself... but I don't know much about it so I dont know if it's a good idea of not :shrug:
