Good luck ladies on your deliveries!  Wonder how many of us are still left?? I am due in 2 days.  Yesterday I was cramping and today nothing just really claim.  I had a membranes sweep in my last pregnancy I went into labour the next day.  I am going to get it done again on Friday.  I hope it works for all of us!

I'm going to ask for this on Friday...I'll be almost a week overdue by then...I had never heard of it before...

Its when the doctor scratches your cervix to jump start labour.  Its uncomfortable but then again it doesn't compare to the last days of pregnancy.
