Did anyone have 2 sweeps?

And go into labor after the 2nd one?
If so, how much longer after?

  • It can take up to 4 times of getting your membranes swept before you go into labor and for some women it never works.

    It's one of those things that won't work unless your body is ready but if you are close it can give you the nudge you need.

  • I'll be 39 weeks when I get my 2nd one.

  • How come you're doing that if you're not overdue?

  • Because it's okay to do it...
    They wouldn't do it if it wasn't safe.

  • Not everything is 100% safe and personally I wouldn't mess with anything and just let nature take its course unless of course it was medically necessary.

    I'm not trying to be rude, I promise. I was in the same boat last time like, "GET THIS BABY OUT OF ME!". Well that lead to a c-section and the whole experience was not as I expected. I'd rather wait it out this time around.
