I was trying to avoid a repeat c-section. Since I wasn't going to get induced I asked my doctor how early she could start doing sweeps. She said she would do them after 35wks.
My doctor wasn't going to let me go past my due date. I was due Jan. 1st and had my baby Dec. 28th.

Mine HURT!!! If it was just uncomfortable, it probably won't work!
I had it done with DD3 at 38w3d and it didn't hurt at all and I had her at 38w5d. I was also at 4cm when I had it done. I had it done again with DD4 at 38w3d and 39w4d and I ended up having her at 40w. I was about 2-3 cm when they stripped. It didn't hurt either time it was done for DD4.

I had it done 2x with my last baby. Once at 40w and 41w. Didn't do a thing! I ended up having baby when God said so at 42w to the day.
