Do you think it'll make that big of a difference if I go a day early....

I'm supposed to go tomorrow to get my membranes stripped....however, I'd rather drive into town today since it's SO nice out (supposed to drop 20 deg and rain tomorrow), but I really want it to work. Do you think doing it a day early will make a big difference?

  • Probably not but will they just do that for you without you telling them ahead of time?

  • As long as they have time available for me to come in and my midwife is working today it shouldn't be a problem. I'm going to call them at 9.....

  • membranes stripped? is that to speed up labor? Today my baby was born 6 yrs ago and he is a bundle of awesome. They might not move your appointment due to other patients, but don't worry about the weather, 60% they are wrong about rain any way's. good luck!
