Membranes swept!

How soon after having your membranes swept did any of you ladies go into labor with previous pregnancies? And how far along were you when you had it done and how dilated/effaced were you?

I wasn't dilating at all during my induction. After long 33 hours my nurse swept my membrane and I started dilating rig by away and started pushing 20 minutes after

38 weeks exactly. That's the earliest my doctor would do it. It hurt, bad. But it was worth it. It was quick.

I had mine done yesterday at 38 weeks and 3 days. I had some contractions but they went away. Now I feel fine and im thinking it didnt work. Pretty disappointed..

I'm almost 41 weeks 2 cm dialated 70% effaced so if baby doesn't come tonight then ill have mine swept at tomorrows weekly appointment. Hopefully it works because I reallyyyy don't want to be induced.
