I keep hearing that at 37 weeks or so you can get the 'streach and sweep', or called 'striping of the membrane' done if you ask your doctor?
Im not tired of being pregnant, my reason is that my whole family will be out of town my due date, and if this is possiable will help me maybe have the baby before they leave.
Is it safe to get this done at 37 weeks? I've had it done with my 1st, but near the end.
Also, whats stoping the 'striping of the membrane' from happening when you have sex? Can that heppen???
Whats your experiance with this? please help -Thank you

That's not a good reason to start labor prematurely. Your baby could end up with a lot of complications if you try to start labor before the baby's fully developed (which is different for every baby). Let it cook in there a little longer and everyone will just have to make plans to see baby once he or she is ready to come.
