I had my membranes swept with both my children, with the first one I had it done once at 38 weeks and I went into labor 12 hours later. The second one I had it done three times before it worked (once a week for three weeks, I asked my doc to do it because I was anxious to deliver) the third time I had them do it I went into labor a few hours later. Bottom line, if your body is ready for labor, It could be all you need to get things moving. If you not near ready yet, it won't do a thing. So if you want to try it, it can't hurt....but take a deep breath because even though its quick, its not pleasant!
