Will My Doctor Strip My Membranes At 37 Weeks 5 Days
39 weeks is best: Stripping the membranes release chemicals called prostaglandins which can help people go into labor. While 37 weeks is considered to be term, it is best to avoid artificially inducing labor before 39 weeks. Most doctors will want to avoid causing a patient to labor without a medical reason before 39 weeks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

So I'm 37 weeks &1 CM dilated and halfway effaced is what doctor said last appointment. For the last two days my vagina has felt swollen& sensitive?
We expect this!: Hi Deborah, As the baby moves down in the pelvis which is what is happening slowly and gradually at this point in your pregnancy, the vaginal tissue is filling with fluid. This is due to the pressure the baby's head is placing on the veins of the pelvis. This is normal and will continue until delivery. It does not feel good but is expected. ...Read more
37 weeks 3 days pregnant, had a membrane sweep 2 days ago, on and off contractions for 3 days, now experiencing low back pain. Could labor be starting?
37 weeks, contractions every 5 min, have lasted for 6 hours, dialated at 2 cent and not much fluid left. Doctors want to send me home. Stay or home?
?????: If you water has broken you cannot go home, i assume it hasn't? Depends if the tracing is ok, how much amniotic fluid is there if you are not ruptured, how far you live away from the hospital, etc. That is a issue between you and your OB doc. ...Read more

I'm at 33 weeks and my baby is still not head down - is it safe to let the doctors turn the baby at 36 or 37 weeks?
Generally, yes.: Most babies will revert to a head down position spontaneously by 37 weeks. Your obstetrician should discuss the pros/cons of turning your baby (external cephalic version) in the 36-37th week. Certain parameters need to be in place before a version is attempted and the success rate is approximately 60-75%. Consider looking into the webster technique practiced by some obstetrical chiropractors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
