    Hi had a sweep yesterday at 38 weeks and already 1cm dilated which is great. She could feel babys head and she was turning it.
    Since then iv been losing what I believe is the plug my question is how long after losing a plug did you go into labour? I know it can be se time for some but love hearng stories. Also if anyone knows of ways to get things moving faster that would be great.
    Thanks

    With my 1st I started to lose my plug about 7 days before labour started but bloody show at 5 days before and with my 2nd it was 5 days before with the bloody show on the day labour started. So fingers crossed it starts for you soon and if not I hope the next sweep works. xx

    I lost my plug 6 days before he was born. What really kicked labor into gear was the magic trifecta: sweep, spicy food, sex! Hope to do the same this time!

    From the stories I've read & what people have told me (I'm a ftm) sounds like you won't be long blue class. Hopefully soon so you can avoid that induction! X

    Only had a couple of lose stools after I eaten so not sure if that's the same. Iv had sex, just had some hot food and bit later il bounce some more. Really hope it's fast I can't say how much I don't want the induction. They want to do it as iv had reduced movements but recently she been good lots of moving. They said il have to go in on the day to be assessed. Got a feeling I'm going to have to have another sweep. X

    Hope it's all kicking off! Remember, if you don't want the induction, they won't force you - it's your call ;-)

    I know I'm hoping they don't scare me into it. I do have another two sweeps before hand so hoping they will work. Iv just got back from buying pineapple juice and have some to eat in the morning. X
