I also had a membrane sweep today. I am 37.5 weeks along, 3 cm open and 80% effaced. This is my 3rd child. Even though my cervix is soft and almost all the way ripe, it's stil…l very far and hard to reach. My doc said that if my body is ready for labor anyway, it will stimulate labor within about 2 days.
