    I've had two unsuccessful sweeps and I'm now 41+2 with baby number 1. This little chap isn't moving anywhere quickly. The only thing I learned was that the midwives felt that I was "ready for labour." I'm ready, cervix is ready, husband is ready. Baby isn't. :(

    i had two sweeps and couple days after the last sweep things happened. Dont get your hopes up after the first one- they are not nice to have, quite uncomfy, but they advise to have lots of sex so the semen starts to thin the membrane!
