I had a membrane sweep today my appointment was at 1115. she came and swept membranes at 1130. By 1 i was back in the er/ob department due to excessive bleeding. there was a very big blood clot and i was bleeding a lot it was running down my leg. The midwife didn't seem to concerned. so she sent me home. Now having cramping but nothing yet like contractions.. hoping something turns for the good.. Still bleeding but its more like spotting. so not a huge deal.. Just hoping this helps because I don't know that i can stay pregnant for much longer due date is saturdayish..

The only thing you can really do is wait and see what happens at this point.

Good luck. I had that happen with my second. I was being induced the following day anyway but she did a sweep to see if we could get going without the meds.  She broke a vessel abd it gushed everywhere. I spotted a little the rest of the day but never went into labor before my induction. 

with my first it worked within a few hours.

I had a membrane sweep done with both children.  With my daughter I went into labor 12 hours after I had it done.  With my son I went into labor 17 hours after I had it done.

Quoting maydaybaby:

Its when they seperate the membranes from the amniotic sac.. its used to try and help push labor.
