didnt work-pretty sure thats how i got my infection that caused me to have to get a c-section. same thing happened to another girl at my OB who had hers done within a few days of mine.

I went into labor the day after I had mine. But I was already dilated to a 2 and showing other signs, and my OB thought I would have had her in a few days anyway

This same exact thing happened to me, also not sure if it's what put me into labor.

I had one done @ 39.5w with DD1, delivered next day.
Had one @ 39w with current baby, nothing. We were 3cm and -2 station Baby actually moved up and into an oblique lie (head in hip) @ my 40w appt. Today (41.1w) she is back in position, @ -3 station and I am 3.5cm and she gave me a sweep, a very good sweep. Hoping mine works too..
