Re: Stripping/Sweeping membranes?

I went into labor at 29 weeks, was hospitalized and put on bedrest and 2 different meds. The Dr expected me to deliver early, but at almost 39 weeks I went in for my appt and he asked if I was ready to finally get this baby here! He stripped the membranes and told me he would see me later on that night! It didn't hurt a bit, a little uncomfortable, but no pain. I had been having contractions for 3 or 4 days before this, but they always stopped. Being my first baby, I didn't know what they were supposed to feel like, so I went into the ER when the "cramps'' were regular. I ended up being induced and having my water broke, but my ds's head was turned crooked so that was keeping me from going into the real labor. He was born about 12 hours after my appt So i think it did help, at least a little!
Proud AF wife, birth & postpartum doula, happy to be a SAHM to my 2 sweet boys, L (3yo) and D (2yo), and surprise! due March 2011!
