Good luck @shani2! I had a s&s and my first contraction 4 hours later (having had no signs whatsoever that I was EVER going to go into labour) so I feel like it definitely kick started things for me.
Consecutive stretch and sweeps are meant to be more effective than just 1.
I had 6 over 2.5 weeks !! As I had GDM and had to birth by 40 weeks to have a homebirth
Was 3-4cm dilated by the time I went into labour so was great for me
I had a S&S with my second baby; my waters broke less than 24 hours later. I was 39+7. Can't say for sure whether it worked or if it would have happened anyway. I'd say go for it, can't hurt!
Good luck hopefully labour is imminent!
I had 3 stretch and sweeps in the week leading up to ds2's birth. He was born about 12 hrs after my last one. I think it worked for me.
Well I've lost my mucous plug and had a bit of a show today. Previously I lost my plug about 12 hours before my waters broke both times so I'm really hoping it's not just leftover from the s&s as it was about 28 hrs after the s&s I noticed it.
Here's hoping this baby comes, it's so stinking got here I don't think I'll be sleeping much tonight so I may as well have a baby!!
Well I'm bouncing on a fit ball, doing hip circles on the fitball and trying to stand and walk around the house as much as I can.
He's been LOA for weeks so is in a good position in regards to that, just need him to drop down.
Open to other suggestions of how to get him to engage further!!
