To be fair, my decision making on that is a bit more complicated. For most of the pregnancy I was measuring quite large. Quite possibly due to increased fluid.
This babe is head down and pretty low, but not as low as dd was before labor started. SO, IMO there is a slightly increased risk of cord prolapse if water is broken...
Just one more factor...
And honestly- my cervix is so high I really doubt she COULD strip my membranes if I wanted it... but still playing with ideas.
let your body and your baby do the preparation and he/she will be here very soon... truly, no one is pregnant forever!
