I am 40 weeks and 3 days and found out i am 2cm dilated today and got a membrane sweep done too. I started spotting right after and have had cramps all day and a few contractions. Anyone else have this done and gone into labor shortly after? I am scheduled to be induced on monday if he doesnt come. But really hoping he comes on his own.

Here's hoping this is it. It never worked for me (had it done twice with DD2).

I had it done 40w 5d with my third baby. I was dilated to a 3 and i think 50% effaced. After the procedure i was spotting, it increased over the weekend and by Monday it was like i was on my period. I had them stripped Friday and had my baby boy the following Monday.

I had it done with my first pregnancy... It's not horrible or comfortable but it most cases it gets things going a bit. I had a little cramping and discharge which was all normal. Good luck!

 I had a sweep done when I was 38 weeks (not sure how many days)...my son was born at 39 weeks 1 day...your body sounds like its already doing what it should.

I've never had it done before. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Sounds like it might be for you.
