I'm 39 weeks pregnant and ready for this pregnancy thing to be over with! I'm so miserable right now...
I see my doctor on Thursday and I'm hoping she will split my membranes!
Does it hurt? Will she do it for me at 39 weeks?
I've tried everything! I've been walking, bouncing on a ball, sex, pineapple, and the list goes on....AND NOTHING IS WORKING!
What has worked for you????

Split your membranes?



Nothing is working, because your body isn't ready. Be patient.

Try waiting 41 weeks (my case)! Only baby will tell you when it's ready.

stripping the membranes does not always work.. I just wanted to prepare you



Yes IMO it hurts and it makes you much more crampy if it doesn't send you into labor. I had it done at 38 weeks my son wasn't born until 40 and it made those last 2 weeks miserable :(



baby only comes when they signal chemicals to the brain to start labor. somethings can help you out in the labor process but nothing will make you "go" into active labor except your body/

if they split your membranes, it would probably suck, yes.



STRIP them, different story.

I'm due the 17th and i've tried pretty much everything you have. I guess it's not our time, and my doctor won't do anything to help me out :/

Why should he? You're not even due yet. :? I will never understand why people are in such a hurry to force their babies out. At least you're able to carry to term. You don't realize how lucky you are.
