Re: Stripping/Sweeping membranes?
I had it done with DS 2 at my 39 week appt. Dr. was pressuring me to induce because DS1 had been 10 lbs. He swept my membranes--didn't hurt any more than a regular pelvic exam--and I went into labor that night. I could tell immediately after the appt. that my uterus was irritated--I was crampy the rest of the day until regular contractions set in. I guess my body was just ready enough! I would definitely do it again--DS 2 was 10 lbs, too!
