I had a stretch and sweep done this morning and have had regular contractions 10 to 15 mins apart for a few hours now. The doctor said that the baby's head is well down and that my cervix was open anyway approx 2cm. This is my 3rd baby and I havent ever had that done with the other 2. He said I should be having him soon because of how things felt. Just wondered if anyone else had this done and if it helped your labour to start or did it take more? thanks Kathy.
