Membrane Sweep smboiser Due April 8 (girl); 1 child; Texas 21 posts

Im scheduled for an induction at 39 weeks due to baby being growth restricted. My doctor is hoping i go into natural labor before that date. I had one membrane sweep at 37 weeks 6 days 1 cm completely closed nothing happened and then again yesterday at 38 weeks 2 days 2 cm 50% effaced and i think she said baby at -1 station. Has anyone gotten a membrane sweep done? did it work? if so how long before it work and were you dialated at all when your doctor did it? Just wondering if there is any hope in me going into natural labor before 39 weeks and i understand it is a 50/50 chance it will work for me. just wondering everyone elses experience



thanks

I had it done with #1 and #3 and it only worked for #1 but it was also done on my due date and I was already having contractions so I'm sure I would have had him when I did had it not been done..
