I'm 40 +1 and had my first sweep 48 hours ago (so painful!) I was 2cm dilated but could be stretched to 3, water bulging, managed to move most of plug (which has continued to come out) but my cervix was posterior. I had another sweep today 2cm dilated still but midwife said she could stretch me to whatever, waters still bulging, some more of my plug came away and she could feel her head and this te cervix is anteior. The midwife gave a bishops score of 6 and booked me in for 3rd sweep for 48 hours but predicted I wouldn't need it.
Since my first sweep in been getting back ache and some braxtin hicks but just wondering if anyone else has experience this and if so how long did it take for contractions to start?
