I havent had one, but my friend just did and had her baby 3 days after. She was in a bit of discomfort from the sweep.

Thank you! I'm hoping that this baby decides to come on his own.

I was already in labour but not much progression after a long time so they did one....without warning. I thought it was just a normal dilation check, I nearly hit the ceiling. Hurt so bad :( it worked straight away though, I dilated more very quickly!

Well I have until next Thursday which is the earliest I would agree to induction, so 3 days doesn't sound too bad, if it works for me.

With baby #1 it hurt like a bitch and I didn't have him until 2 days later at 39.1 weeks. Baby #2 I had it done on my due date and didn't feel anything. He was stuck in the posterior position and was born 5 days late. Baby #3 she did it at 38.5 weeks and nothing happened so she did it again at 39.5 weeks and it was just a little uncomfortable both times. My water started slowly leaking around 2am the next morning and I had him that night, literally an hour before my due date.

She tried last week but couldn't reach, I was 2cm last week, 3cm this week. I hope you start progressing soon too. I go back Monday for a final checkup and she said she'll try it again if I haven't had the baby by then.

I went into labor the morning after my stretch and sweep at 39 weeks. Had a tough labor, wouldn't dilate, ended up having to use pitocin and vacuum extraction. I feel like it put me into labor before I was really ready. Next time I wouldn't do it until I was well overdue.

Pretty much exactly like that. I had it done several times during the end of each pregnancy in the hopes that I would go into labor on my own. It never worked. It was sometimes uncomfortable and sometimes causes a few contractions. I always bled a bit and lost a bunch of mucus plug .... and that was it. I always made it to induction day... :D
