  • I had my membranes "swept" (I'm guess that's the same thing- I've just never heard it put as scraping) between 28 and 29 weeks with my first. I had the baby the next night.

    It was uncomfortable but not anymore painful than when the doctor checks you.

  • Why are they wanting to sweep your membranes? Are you past 42 weeks? This will help me to better answer your questions.

  • Like all the other people, I had mine done at like 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41 weeks and nothing worked. I eventually had to be induced.
