    I was hoping for a definitive answer LOL! Seems like it's a gamble and may or may not work.

    I'll chat with the midwife, maybe she could do an internal just check and see if there's any movement at the camp and then I'll make a decision.

    Thank you all for taking the time to reply.

    With number 1 nothing, but I wasn't really dilated.
    I'm thinking of asking for one Monday ( due date) as I want to avoid chemical induction and its worth a shot

    To add to this, it's uncomfortable but for me definitely not painful so I second that you don't have anything to lose.

    Not sure
    I was in pre-labour & at 2cms when I had a S&S. I had DD about 12hrs later. Hard to say how much it did contribute though..

    That's why I want one. The thought of another induction sends my anxiety into overdrive.

    I hope your labour starts naturally soon! ☺️

    The midwife wouldn't do it. Said it was too early (I'm just over 38 weeks). So I'll ask again next week.

    With number one I had one in my 39th week, my cervix was long and hard at the time. The s&s did nothing she came of her own accord ten days overdue.
    With number four I had three over the course of a week or two, I was already 4cms dilated but bubs head was high. Nothing happened and she was induced.

    With my second I had the sweep at 41 weeks at round three in the arvo. I started cramping probably around 20 minutes later. DD was born 7am the next morning. I also had one with my last baby at 38 weeks. I was a bit crampy for a few hours after but nothing much happened until I was induced with a drip.

    Well I'm not sure if I would have gone anyway but Monday was 4cm with #2 so had one, had contractions all day and more mucus plug loss. went into birthing in evening still only 4cm so was sent home ( as contractions were deemed pre labor) few hours after that contractions intensified and she was born
