I would be mad that he didnt mention it to you and asked if you wanted it done. My doctor sits and talks to me about everything that's why I chose him.

It did make me spot a little bit but still no baby I dont even know if it was ment to send me into labor or what I'm going back tomorrow because he wants to do it again and now that I have knowledge that he's going to do that I can atleast have a chance to ask questions before hand! I'm confused about the whole thing hopefully I'd get it cleared up tomorrow.

I had my cervix stretched (aka my membranes sweeped) with my last baby but that was because I asked my doctor ahead of time. With my first child, I didn't start to dilate until 40 weeks and had to be inducedd.. but I went into labor on my own with my last 2 kids. With my middle son, I was only 1 cm dilated when my water broke. How many cms dilated you are doesn't mean much.

Forgot to mention that I went into labor 6 days after my membranes were sweeped.

Jumping in to let you know that the dialation has nothing to do with delivery. With my first baby my water broke at 38 weeks and when I got in the hospital I was not dialated at all! Nothing, not even a cm; and now with my second child I am litterally sitting here typing over 3 cm dialated at 39 weeks and no sign of baby, except the fact that I can feel her head between my legs lol.
It's just a matter of when your baby is ready to come out.

Sorry I didn't write back I went to my apt to get stretched again and babys heart rate was in the 190's, it was the second time this has happened so my doctor wanted me to have a c section that day! I was in shock/scared/nervous but i had the c section just a couple hours after the apt and I had a healthy baby girl 6lbs 13oz. Now she's two weeks old and doing great! We still don't know why her heart rate was up so high in the womb but she's perfectly perfect outside the womb now so that's all that matters
