I didn't get it done with my first pregnancy and have been reading up on it. I'll be 38 weeks not at this appointment, but my next, and was considering asking my doctor about having this done if I've started dilating. My husband's work schedule is a little different then your standard 8-5. He works 8 days straight, 10 hour days, then has 6 off. We were hoping that'd I'd go into labor either right at the end of his work days because his boss will only give him a day or two off (if that), or right at the beginning of his days off so that we get as much time together with the baby as possible.
Have any of you gotten your membranes stripped after 38 weeks? When did you go into labor afterwards? Would you recommend it?

I've seen doctors induce when DH has a schedule like yours. I'd go for it. Can you have the doctor strip your membranes on DH's 7th work day? It can take a day or two to work.
