    I had a sweep 2nd time due to having a big baby last time. I had it on the Thursday and waters went the Saturday Morning. Was having bloody mucus but not loads so hopefully it's a sign it's started something. Good luck xx

    My midwife said they give it 48hrs for something to happen after the sweep but I had mine Wednesday and had a lot of brown mucus plug, that's it! X

    I had my first sweep on Wednesday. Had a brown tinged discharge that evening, lost some (or all, I have no idea how much it's meant to be?!) of my plug that night/following morning, then nothing!

    I have another booked in for next Wednesday. I really don't want to be induced, I just keep hearing horror stories!

    I had 4 sweeps in total.

    My last one i was already contracting but didnt know until MW could feel my cervix moving around her fingers lol..

    This was 41+3! That last one, despite things already happening, defo helped! within an hour of getting bk home from drs contractions had kicked off big time. I was up thr hosp 2hrs later and he was born 7.5hrs after my 1st noticeable BIG contraction.

    FX things start soon hun xx
