  • The dr did this to me with my first, it hurt like he**! It didn't work for me, I was induced a couple days later (I was 3cm when this was done)

  • I dont know if you mean stretched your cervix or stripped your membranes but I had both. I dont believe that either works. They will irritate your cervix and cause you to be crampy but I dont believe that it will actually cause labor to start
