    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!

    That was dedication!! Considering it's an hour each way to the birth centre, I don't think I'll be getting another one except for maybe on Friday when I'm already there for a ctg and uss. Here's hoping won't get to that tho!

    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!!

    Eeep! Good luck! I'll be sending labour vibes your way. Will you do anything to help Bub move down and in position?

    Haha, thank you, it could all be wishful thinking but he has to come out at some point right?! And I'm now 40+4 and so this is my longest pregnancy so far 😁

    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!!

    Give him a stern talking to. Tell him to stop playing games and swim to the tunnel so mummy, daddy and his big brothers can give him cuddles and kisses lol.

    ETA. You have boys don't you? Sorry if I got it wrong.
