19th Nov '12

And im tired and im in so much pain and so uncomfortable it's almost hard to function. I wish little one would come out already. I'll be 38 weeks tomorrow and on Friday im getting my membranes swept. A bit nervous because ive never had it done before and im hearing it hurts but if it'll get labor going im all for it. In case it doesn't im extremely happy that my OB induces at 39 weeks.

prepare for the "let your baby bake" backlash.

You should really be apprehensive that you have a doctor who induces early with absolutely no medical reason

Getting your membranes swept don't always put you into labor. I had a friend get hers stripped 3 times and still got induced at 42 weeks.

Ive done research and she's a highly recommended OB in my area. So far no real complications or mishaps.

My doc.said it may hurt and also a few women on here. Im hoping it isn't painful but even if it is I heard it's really quick and im hoping it does start labor of some sort. I've been 1cm for weeks.

Only 1 cm but that was 2 weeks ago. My last two appointments she didn't check. I think my OB wanted to try this before inducing so she's going to sweep my membranes, if it doesn't work then a week or week and a half after I'll be induced.
