    Hi I'm nipping over from the 3rd tri..
    I'm 5 days over due and had a membrane sweep at my app today and was wondering what will happen now since my app Iv had loads of Braxton hicks..

    How many of you have had a sweep that worked and how long after did you go into labour?

    If it helps I am 2cm dilated thanks :) xxx

    I had one 6 days before my due date (Thursday) by Saturday I was losing bits of plug (sorry TMI) and went into labour and had LO on my due date. I was only about 1cm dilated when the consultant did the sweep though HTH xx

    I had my first sweep at 40+5. I was 1cm dilated but cervix was still thick. Had bracton hicks quite strong but never regulated beyond 20mins

    Had second sweep at 40+12. I was 2cm dilated and cervix was facing forward now. Had sweep at 4pm, had bellyache afterwards and felt little bit sick. My waters broke 5 hours later with immediate contractions every 3 1/2 minutes.

    I think they say if a sweep is successful then labour will start within next 48 hours. I felt very hormonal after second sweep but this may be because I didn't want to be induced in two days time.

    Good luck - keep us posted !

    I was very overdue so I had a sweep Friday 12pm and by Saturday evening I was having contractions, my princess arrived 8am Sunday morning. I had a very successful sweep may I say!
    Good luck!

    Hi

    I had a sweep on my due date & then went for a long walk. I lost lots & lots of plug & was in labour 6 hours later. Had braxton hicks about 3 hrs before labour kicked off

    Good luck Hun xx

    I had a sweep at 40+7 (a Wednesday), at 1pm, was 1cm dilated. Contractions started at 7pm that night but stayed at 6-8 minutes apart until early hours of Sunday morning. I was due to be induced on the Sunday at 8am but went in at 5am with broken waters instead and he was born by EMCS at 9.50am because my BP suddenly shot through the roof (around the time they refused me an epi because of an infection!) and then his heartrate dropped so they decided enough was enough.

    Good luck! Fingers crossed it works for you :)

    I had 3 sweeps, was 2cm dilated for all of them! After the third one, went into labour 24 hours later. Whether it was the sweep or just the fact that 'he was ready', I dont know!
    Good luck though hun!
