Any membrane sweeping success stories? and Open Forum

I went to the doc for my weekly.  Havn't gained any weight again this week.  I have an us on Friday to once again check on the baby.  Today she did an internal, I am 1 cm, ripe cervix, baby is in position....She swept my membranes...

Did sweeping the membranes work for any of you?  I'm not real positive, she swept with my son 2 times and he still came 1m week late.  This time there is more concern because of the should dystocia I had with him.  They have me schedule for induction on Aug 22 so I have an end date.

I'm trying so hard not to complain, I am so thankful for this little girl.  Just tired of vomiting, the runs and generally not feeling well.  I know it will be worth it when she gets here.

Well, I'm at the three hour mark....

I guess she just wants to cook a little longer.

LOL, I remember being anxious as well.  I didn't even know what he had done.  I had to go to L&D for a NST after my appointment and of course they sent me to the bathroom to leave a sample.  Well when I got up there was blood everywhere and I freaked out and pulled the emergency cord.  The nurse came in and freaked too.  She took me to my room and called my OB.  He told her he expected that and not to worry.  He just didn't tell me what he had done.  But I did end up going into labor that day.  Have you had a bloody show or anything yet?

I was SOOOO ready for baby, and the dr. thought things were fine, so she swept my membranes (actually, she called it 'stripped') at about 38 weeks.  My DD didn't come until about 5 days later.

I'm hoping to avoid being induced, as I know the liklehood of a section goes up.

Come on girlie, shake out of there....

I had my membranes stripped 3x (ouchie) with my son and he was still almost a week late. Hopefully it'll work for you!!

I had them stripped three times with my son as well and he was a week late.  They won't let me go over this time as I had a lot of complications with my other two.

I guess that's the bright side then. You do have an end date!

Hi! I'm trying to type with my son on my shoulder, so this will be brief. It did work for me with my second daughter within about 6 hours, are you still around ?

PS-new pics of Brody on myspace (:

I had it done with both of mine too.  My first son got stuck as well due to size so they induced me at 39 weeks with baby #2, but began sweeping just shy of 37 weeks.  I was still at a 3 when I went in, but I did get strong contractions and bloody show for a few days each time.  I was told I could have gone in and they would have admitted me, of course they tell me this when I'm already in the hospital.  Good luck, you are still a ways away, so she still has time to decide she's ready.  I hope it works for you though!

I had a membrane sweep this morning about 11:45am and still nothing I don't think, have felt a bit achy on my vagina but that's it. It's now been 4 hours 20 minutes so I am hoping something will happen tonight. I am 39 weeks 6 days today. 40 weeks tomorrow - 27th.
