Enjoy the time and rest up. Take as many naps while you still have time.

Sweeping of the membranes hurts like hell!!! It made me cry when I had to be induced for my second son and also when my idiot ob did it without my permission with my first son.
It hurts and doesn't even work half the time to jump start labor, in my case it didn't work at all. All pain and no gain.
I hope that was helpful :)

You're welcome :)

Just remember it's your body, you are also in charge.

oh yea. my ob hinted induction but left it at that because she knows i want to go naturally. the silly thing is that what I've really lost patience for is the rest of the family, DD, SO, and the pets. I know its unreasonable but I just keep thinking once the pregnancy is over those things will be less bothersome. LOL, right?

Yes DEFINITELY lol! You forget how crazy pregnancy hormones make you. It will go away! The end of pregnancy is so hard and I do understand that as much as you want a natural birth you know that DD is creeping up. It makes you anxious. Just try to relax and do some meditation or anything that will take your mind off of it. I know how you feel but you can do this! You have made it this far what is a little more time right?
