Cervical sweep!!!

Today I got a cervical sweep done!.. I was due yesterday.. And when i got it done my doctor told me that i wasn't dilated and my cervix was still a lil high!! But after i got it done I started to bleed very lightly and started having cramps!.. Any of u ladies got this done? And was in the same position as me... Not dilated, bleeding and cramping!! Did it put u into labor??

I had it done with my 1st pregnancy and went into labor the next morning. I was dilated some but was definately going to be late.
I am due on the 8th with this current pregnancy, and if I have not had the baby by next doctor appointment I'll be asking the doctor to go ahead with the sweep again this time around.

Ive been wondering if my doctor will do that for me, I have a check up tomorrow. I'm 38 and 3 and was 3 centimeters and 80% effaced but the other doctor said they don't do anything for first time moms unless they're over due....

I had a stretch and sweep last Monday. I was 30% effaced and started 2cm dilated and left 3cm dilated, cervix still high and thick. I had some cramping, back ache and brownish light spotting for the rest of the day. My doctor said if you have bleeding like a period you need to call, it should only be spotting.

I had mine stripped yesterday. I'm 37+2 today. I'm still spotting but I'm hoping to go into labor soon. I'm 3cm and 75% effaced so my dr says it could start labor but nothing yet.

yeah mother of 3 i was, but i really knew my body would go when ready and wanted to avoid intervention if i could. and I was succesful. ( i feel the sweep is the least invasive form of intervention)

Well the sweep did nothing for me... I'am now 3 days over due and still no sign of labor :/ so I'm pretty positive I'm going to have to get induced on the 7th! I have an ultrasound tomorrow to
C if baby is positioned rite and to c if baby is doing good... I think he's doing just fine he's moving lots :) he's just being stubborn and doesn't wanna come out :/
