    Default Stretch & sweep...

    Did it work for you? If so how long was it between having it done and your labour starting?

    me + he = dd1 (July 2007), dd2 (July 2010), dd3 (August 2012), dd4 (due May 2014) + sil (1997)

    I had one 4 days after my due date at about 4pm on a Monday afternoon. I started feeling contractions at around 9pm that night, went to hospital at about 6am and had bub at 8pm Tuesday.

    Yep! I was having irregular contractions and was 4cm dilated and had a S&S and went into labour straight away. Made the contractions regular and 5 hours later I was holding my boy. But this was my second and I had been contracting irregularly for 4 days.

    Mine was at 36.
    But as I said, I had been contracting 10 mins apart for 4 days. I was 4cm and baby was +1 engaged so they decided to help me out and not make me suffer any longer lol

    I had one with DD2, had a few contractions that afternoon and through the night, woke up with a few more, was in prelabour most of the day and DD was born after around 3 hours of labour that night.
