Following. .. im having my sweep done on Thursday...would like to know as well
I had one at 37 weeks. I was 4 cm dilated and my cervix was 80% soft. I thought it was going to send me into labor but it didn't. I got induce at 39 weeks.
Interesting. My sister had two sweeps as well and neither of them sent her into labor, but her inducement went very quickly because she was 5 cm by the time they induced her..
I had 3 sweeps done. Finally the last one took and best part it was done the day before I was to be induced. Was still in labor 24 hours later so the doctor broke my water as agreed for the induction. 2 hours later my first child was born.
My sister in law had 6 and none of them worked.
Can I ask if the membrane sweep is painful? I'm scheduled to have one in a couple weeks and I'll admit I'm a little afraid..
It wasn't comfortable, but it wasn't super painful either.
I had a membrane sweep with my first and I went into labor 3 hours after I got it done. I was also 5cm dialated and 70% effaced.
