My MW with Zane they only will do sweeping if you are overdue, as you really can't go past 42w in CA or something like that. So at 41w I got a sweep. No labor. Zane was born 5 days after the sweep.

My MW here in the UK is pretty hands off the cervix and internal checks. I requested a sweep at 41w just like with DS#1. I went into labor about 6 hours later and DS#2 was born 12.5hrs after the sweep. (I did do nipple stimulation in the shower after the sweep with my breast pump which I believe helped)
