i am 30 weeks pregnant and have had a horrible, painful , rough pregnancy and am getting "naturally" induced around 36 weeks due to the fact. she said something about sweeping the membranes and how it could be painful and uncomfortable depending the stage my cervix is at, at the time. im curious if anyone may have any advice on how i could prep my cervix for the sweep like softening it somehow to be ready for it? i took primrose with my last child and it worked wonders but didnt start it until 36 weeks like it says.. has anyone used it earlier? dr cant suggest anything so im tryna go outside the box here,. thanks ALSO* to add, if i dont have her by 38 weeks im getting medically induced maybe even c-section depending on situation at the time... so really hoping to make this happen before 38 weeks like dr plans!
