I’m currently 38 weeks and had an attempted sweep yesterday but cervix was only slightly open. Today I have been getting regular tightenings in my stomach (about every 20 minutes) with a lot of pressure and period pain. I wouldn’t say it’s painful, just uncomfortable. Could this just be braxton hicks? I’ve not lost my mucus plug either
I’m 41 weeks and had the same as you but nothing is happening. I know from my previous miscarriage that the start of labour felt like period cramps and gradually got worse till the pain really hurt and then cervix opened for baby. It could be the start of early labour for you, just keep an eye on it. Have they told you to do anything to help the cervix open up more?
