This is so personal, clearly, but I would do it at 40 this time. Just becasue wouldn't it be nice if baby and grandpa shared a bithday AND a middle name.
Sweep membranes? - Page 2
thanks for that story. I went to the doc yesterday and even with the VBAC he's willing to let me go to 42 weeks without any sort of induction- woo hoo! He offered pitocin but said that that decreases the VBAC success rate.
I may still have the membranes swept-- he didn't mention it yesterday and that's fine with me since I'm not even 40. I think I'll wait until 41 weeks and some days, as you did. Just enough to use it as a possibility to avoid a section. I would much rather labor begins when my body is totally ready. Last labor was 36 hrs and baby never came down. I want to stack the odds in this ones' favor :)
Glad to hear that it didn't hurt- that's one of my other fears. Like I said, I'm a pain wimp!
That's great that it worked so well for you!
