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 had this done with my first child and it didn't do a thing for me (other than make me very uncomfortable for a bit).  Because of my experience with my first, I decided against it for my second.
