Tomorrow I have an appt with my OB. I will be 39 weeks 2 days. I have a feeling I will be asked if I want to have the membranes stripped, but I really dont know what my answer will be. I have been reading up on it for the last week, but it seems people have varying opinions on it, even here on MDC. A lot of midwives seem to do it, it isn't just an OB thing.
I am very sick of being pregnant. That's the part of me that thinks maybe I would do it. But I just don't know. I was around 3 cm dialated last week, and have been for a couple weeks. My cervix was soft last week, that's all I know. I don't have any medical reasons. My dr. is going on vacation next week, but it isnt like I am super attached to him. He was gone when I had my son too so I know how that all works. He has said he would want to induce at 41 weeks, which scares the shit out of me.
So, what are your thoughts on membrane stripping? Would you do it? Have you had it done? Would you do it again? what were your results?
