Need help!

I’m 38 + 1 day prego and my ob did a membrane sweep today. She said my mucus plus was out already and I was 1cm dilated. Is it normal to do a membrane sweep at 38 weeks? I’m not trying to have contractions and only be 1cm dilated. No complications in my pregnancy everything has been good, bp has been great so I wanna make sure that was a smart thing to do. Now I’m cramping very badly and baby moving so much. Just advice would be great

It’s normal and you can go into labor 1cm And get to the hospital and be 3-4cm

Did she ask if you wanted the sweep? It's a natural induction technique. My midwives said I would have to be a few cms in order to do the sweep. 37 weeks is considered full term so should be fine.

Thanks so much ladies! No she didn’t ask if I wanted the sweep but I just wanna make sure I’ll be dilated enough before contracting

She did a sweep without asking?

Correct but I didn’t refuse/reject it when she mentioned she would be doing it

She just assumed that you wanted one? I'd be livid tbh
