pros and cons

I need a list of pros and cons of a stretch and sweep/sweeping the membranes. I have an appointment tomorrow and I've been having early labor type contractions for days now. I'd really just like to get things moving. Positive and negative real life experiences would be great as well. I'd really like to make an informed decision. Thanks ladies!

I had it done it didn't hurt it was uncomfortable it didn't help me go into labor tho and I was induced at 40+1. I was already at 4cm dilated when the sweep was done

Yeah I think I'm already sitting at about a three. I'll be pretty surprised if I'm told differently at my appointment tomorrow. I haven't asked for a check in three weeks but I'm curious if these stupid contractions are doing anything at all!
