Membrane Stripping

should i get my membranes stripped? I have been reading articles about how labor will start when its your time, but then again i have been hearing good stuff about how the stripping helps you go into labor and lessens your chance of going over your due date and having to be induced. But then again i also read it shouldnt be done until your cervix is ready...my last doc appointment i was only a fingertip dialated...if im not dialated anymore then that should i wait? My doc said its up to me im just confused wether or not i should? Oh i will be 38 and a half weeks when they want to do it.

My cousin had her membranes stripped....she said that to her it was very painful, and it actually didn't help her at all. Everyone is different though, it may help you. But she hung on another couple of weeks, and eventually went to be induced and ended up having a c-section. 9 lb 9 oz baby girl, the baby was just too big for her to have naturally.
