I'm hoping for an all natural birth because my last was an induction. It went fine but I still want to experience the real thing.
I'm thinking at my 39 week appointment to ask about getting the membrane sweep. I know it only works If your body is ready, but since I am 3-4 cm dilated, do you think it will be apt to work? I just really want to stay away from being induced again. I know I have until 42 weeks.
