Hi I had a sweep today and I've been bleeding since. I rang the hospital and they say this is normal. Does anyone know if this is normal? Does it mean that something is happening?> I don't really know what to make of it. What are the chances of a sweep getting things going? Thanks in advance!!

I didn't bleed after mine so I suppose they mean normal in the way bleeding after a smear is ok but won't necessarily happen? I had a sweep in the morning at 5 days over and went into labour that night.
