Just wondering if anyone has had them done...im sure someone has though. When will they do that and how effective is it? My SIL got hers done at 38wks. Which I found to be quite early. Ill be 39wks on sunday...and i have 2 drs appts next week. Should I ask to have this done? Does it hurt?

Never had it done, never plan on having it done. It doesn't always work and it's just not worth the extra pain to me :)

See my SIL didnt say it hurt but she went into labor that night. So i figured it worked. They only do it if your not dialated any?

Some ppl say it hurts others dont. Everyones pain tolerance is different. I wasnt dilated at all and i went into labor that day as well.
