Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

yes it should make u go into labor
I was 40 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child when my doctor swept my membranes but I didn't deliver until a week later (1 day before I was scheduled for induction).  It is definitely a little uncomfortable but you will be fine.  Hopefully you have better luck (as most women do).  My little pumpkin just wanted to stay in where it was warm.  LOL
