I wish I could say I was happy to see you but that would be a lie. I'm not. I'm huge, uncomfortable and have never been in so much pain. I have my 40 week appointment this afternoon and if a membrane sweep is offered I will be taking it. Heck, I may even ask for one. All they can say is no. I can't remember if they do it at 40 weeks or at the 41 week 3 day appointment. I'm trying to be strong and not play my "get out of pregnancy free" card. I figure I've come this far without using it, all I have left at most is another 14 days.
I don't blame you one bit for feeling that way. If you've reached your due date I don't see why they wouldn't do a membrane sweep. It's not like that guarantees labor will start it just helps things along if you're ready.
so sorry... i still have one week and 1 day to get to my dd. and im already not happy. im very uncomfy and really need my to not be carrying a baby anymore. though your so right we have been carrying these babies how long already? we sure can take a couple more weeks at best. i know my doctor will induce me at 9 days late thats as far as he lets you go. however thats a thursday i think and he works on tuesday so im positive that my end date will be the 27th if she doesnt come before then. not much longer to go.
