    Default Can I ask for a membrane sweep at 38+4 days?

    I'm seeing my ob 2 morro and I was hoping to ask for an internal and if my cervix seems favorable I'd like a s&s! Will they perform one before 40 wks

    The obstetrician did an internal (at my request) at 39 weeks, found that I was 2cm dilated so she did a S&S. I continued to dilate over the next 2 weeks and DD was born at 41 weeks exactly...so I don't think the S&S did much, my body did it in its own time.
