Membrane Stripping?

If your doctor offers, and you are close to your due date, will you go ahead with membrane stripping?  Have you had it done in previous pregnancies? Did it help get labor started?

i'll be 39w 2d at my appointment on friday.  if i'm still pregnant then, doc said he'd strip the membranes if i wanted him to.  YES.  sounds like it can definitely speed up the process and it sounds so much better than being induced.  ready to meet our little man, and i'll for sure go for this on friday if this LO hasn't arrived by then!
