Sorry if title got you excited, no Im not having contractions yet! Im now booked for a sweep tomorrow morning with midwife, so will be able to at least find out if Im dilating or anything. Now I have read that its common for a sweep to give you contractions afterwards that may just stop. Now I don't want to get contractions for a hour or something, phone up OH and have him rush home from work to be with me and find they just stop. does anyone know if there is a certain point where you know if it is the real thing of not? like if its not the real thing are they irregular or is there a certain amount of time I should wait and if they are still going on its the real thing? I dont want my body to react to the sweep and I end up having a false alarm!
