Stretch and sweep

If you had one did it work? How far along were you? How dilated and effaced were you? Had you been having BHs before hand?

I had one with my second and third and they never worked but I'm going to ask my OB to do one tomorrow to see if it works.

Nah, I like to let my babies come when they're ready.

Didn't work for me and hurt too much to do it with another pregnancy.

Why do you want to induce?

Well it is safest to save interventions for a true need!     ;-)

I had three and delivered within 12 hours. Only about 2 hours of that was labor though. I didn't think they hurt, uncomfortable but not painful.

My BP has been steadily spiking, I'm spilling protein in my urine, I've had head aches, seeing spots and I'm swelling really bad.

LOL...when I read the title, I didn't immediately get it (long day).

I thought, "is stretch and sweep something like the bend and snap"?

Have you been working to improve your health?
It might be nicer to avoid risks.
GL!
