Due a second sweep tomorrow, will it work this time?

I had a sweep on Friday, about 20 minutes after it I had a sore contraction - I freaked out and the fear ran through me!! I actually thought this is is.. But I think the fear scared off the labour lol. Anyway, last week I was 50% effaced and 1cm dilated. I had my bloody show on the Saturday - so it did something.

I am now 2cm dilated and 75% effaced. Will it have more effect this time as I'm more "ready"..??

Just a little update. Been having contractions for about an hour now, around 7-10 mins apart! Hoping its labour and not one of false alarms!!
