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.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the amazing siggy.

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.

I agree...my doctor hasn't mentioned anything about sweeping but I'm going to ask him this Friday at our next appt. If it's got less side effects than inducement, seems like an obvious thing to try?

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.
