    Hey all I'm now 38+4 I had a stretch and sweep last Tuesday (3 days ago) after the sweep I was told I was 3 cm dilated and half thinned, I had a show whilst she did it and all that eve I had bright red period like blood in my liners..

    Wednesday bleeding stemmed, I lost my big dischargey bloody blob (bright red snotty like) do i lost the mucus plug I had three big bits throughout the day ..

    Thursday (yesterday) I had blood tinged discharge when I wiped after urinating ..

    Today = nothing!

    Anyone else been like this? I'm supposed to be induced Tuesday of no luck but due to having no space to be induced my midwife will sweep me again on Monday (bank hol)

    Then if nothing I'll be induced on my due date! 4th.

    Advice helpful. I feel like my bump is also getting smaller ?

    I had one at 38w didnt really do much. Then a week later I started to get contractions was examined she gave a sweep and said go home and rest baby will be here some point today. That afternoon went bavk in as was contracting more was nice and stretchy she said so she gavee another sweep to encourage it.. an houe later I was in laboir. 1st sweep inhad didnt hurt 2nd was bareable 3rd was agony but thats because my cervix was ready xx

    You can have more than 1 show, bump feels smaller as head engages and baby goes lower into the pelvis. Sweeps are roughly 50% effective in getting you into labour.
