39 weeks- I will be induced on Thursday. I have gestational diabetes and I've been dilated to a whopping 5cm since LAST Monday. (This obviously is not my first rodeo!) I had been getting irregular contractions for over a week now. In 2 hours I have the option at my midwife appointment to have my membranes swept. I've never had this done before and I've read mixed reviews on it.
I'd rather go into labor without AROM on Thursday IF possible, however, if the membrane sweep is just going to leave me feeling crampy and crabbier then I already am- I'd rather just wait it out. Your thoughts/opinions? I'm going back and forth on whether to have it done, or just wait 2 more days for them to break my water.

If your body is ready to start labor, it works. if your body is not ready, it won't work. Just like anything else out there.
