My midwife mentioned at my appointment last night that next week (I'll be 38+2) if I'd like, I can have my cervix checked and my membranes swept. I have such mixed feelings about it--on the one hand, I feel like it's "okay" because it probably won't do anything unless I'm pretty darn close to going into labor anyway. On the other hand, I feel like I shouldn't be jumping the gun and getting so impatient when I'm just now full term. (By the way, she offered this based on the fact that I was 3 cm Sunday, so the assumption is that I should still be at least 3 cm next week... although if anyone's cervix decided to close, it would be mine LOL.)
What are your thoughts/feelings on membrane sweeping?
