I usually lurk on this board to read about everyone's experiences and as mine is getting closer I wanted to get some thoughts.
So at my last appt 36w5d I was soft and a finger tip dilated. My OB is thinking about stripping my membranes next week - 37w5d - to try to get things going. I would like to avoid a RCS. DS was 9 days late, 3 day induction, never went into labor on my own, never made it past 4cm and he never dropped. OB says I have a narrow pelvic area as well.
What do you ladies think about stripping the membranes so early? I think I am going to see if we can wait another week. I believe she wants to do it so that things move along and I have a better chance at a VBAC rather than waiting longer. They also stripped them with DS and it did nothing.
