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.
It wasn't comfortable, but it wasn't super painful either.
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..
My sister in law had 6 and none of them worked.
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.
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 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.
Following. .. im having my sweep done on Thursday...would like to know as well
