Has anyone ever had this done and it was successful helping them go into labor? My dr did it this morning and I just wondering how it was for other people. I am 37 weeks 5 days, dialted to 2cm and I think he said I'm at a -1 station.
I HAD MY MEMBRANES STRIPPED WITH DD1....I GOT CRAMPY AND HAD SOME CONTRACTIONS, WAS 3CM AT THE TIME AND PROGRESSED TO 4 THE NEXT MORNING BUT WAS INDUCED DUE TO PRE-E.....EVERYONE REACTS DIFFERENTLY GOOD LUCK!
With DD1 I had my membranes stripped at my last appointment (so about 39 1/2 weeks). I got crampy and had some bloody show. I went into labor 2 days after that and had her on the third day. Like PP said, everyone's different but getting your membranes stripped should get the process moving. Good luck!
