  • its 50% EFFACED and that means that 50% of your cervix has thinned out and is gone. Stripping the membranes can help but it didnt help me. Congrats on your scheduled induction:) I hope that it goes very smoothly!

  • i'm always surprised that people don't ask their doctors what's going on ! like why not ask what she meant by 50% or why she wanted to strip your membranes! ? i always took a list of questions and then tons would come up during my appointments.
    good luck! it sounds like you won't have too much longer. but it could be a couple weeks more.
