  • Ask, I'm sure by now your OB is aware of all of your health concerns and if she feels the baby is ready, which at 38 weeks it's probably not an issue, I'm sure she will oblige. If she won't I'm sure she has her reasons. Good luck.

  • That's a good question...my dr stripped my membranes at that time without me even asking. I would just explain your concerns and see what the doc thinks. If you are at 38 weeks this time, I think it's a safe time to ask. I would never recommend it earlier than that though.
