You can ask for whatever you want, but they may not comply. It hurts like heck ( well, it did for me) and it may do nothing.

The only reason I want that is because I went to l&d last night with contractions and something happened where the baby's heart had almost completely stopped. I am literally terrified of something happening

You were misinformed if baby was having decels they would not have sent you home!

If this happened, they shouldn't have sent you home! You should call and talk to your doctor and find out what happened.

You can ask for a membrane sweep, but they may say no. It's not a guaranteed way to put you into labor and may just make you very uncomfortable.

It happened. I was put on oxygen and had 3 doctors in there. They said they were confident he would be ok and sent me home. Have a dr appointment in an hour so I'm hoping they will tell me something
