I'm hoping for a VBA2C, and my OB has recommended that my doctor do a membrane sweep next week (i'll be 38 weeks) and every week after if it doesn't work the first time. I went to 41 1/2 weeks with both my other babies, and if I go to 42 weeks this time, it will be a scheduled c-section. Originally, it was 41w3d, but I managed to talk the OB into waiting until 42 weeks. My other babes were 8 lbs 2.5 oz and 9 lbs 3 oz, so I'd rather not go that long this time to maybe have a smaller baby. (This baby also has a different dad than my first two, so I'm hoping that might make a difference too.)
With my last baby, my midwife tried to do a sweep at 41 weeks, but I wasn't dilated at all so she couldn't do it. I don't know if I'm dilated this time or not, but baby has engaged (neither of my other babies every did.) I've been drinking gallons of RRL, and taking EPO orally and vaginally.
What are the chances that this will put me into labour? I'm tired of being pregnant, and really want my VBAC, and know that my chances are better if I go into labour before my due date...but at the same time don't expect much to happen.
