I Had The Membrane Sweep Done

Nissa - March 7

hi, yesterday I went for my appt and had a sweep done. Prior to the sweep, I was told I was 3 cm dilated and 90% effaced. Almost immediately I had the most intense contractions. They weren't regular but they were ridiculously strong. I was scared to be driving away from the hospital toward home but I did because they were not at all regular. The contractions were VERY intense for hours but no pattern, I then had a bloody show around 9 last night. I had lots of pressure etc. My sister wanted me to go to the hospital because with her second child, she never had pain, she only had pressure and when she went to the hospital she was 8 cm dilated and they broke her water and her sone was born 15 minutes later. My first labour was 4 hours start to finish so I'm not sure if I should go to teh hospital if the contractions start up again even if irregular ( my sister had only a few contractions all day with her son). What does everyone think?? Thanks in advance. BTW, the sweep was hardly even uncomfortable for me. I knew he was doing it but it truly was not even the tiny bit painful, just annoying.
