My doc stripped my membranes today

easily the most painful experience ever, good thing it was quick

if you had that happen was that pain similar to a contraction?

I am only 38 weeks and I was 1.5cm dilated at the time he did it and then about an hour later I wiped and the rest of my mucus plug came out. I had no bleeding after though.

So my other question long was it until you went into labor after you had your membranes stripped?
how far along were you when you got them stripped?

  • I got mine stripped at 36wk4days.
    We knew he was ready, and he was going to be big, so my dr did it to help me out.
    I went into labor right on 37 weeks.

    (I was in early labor all that week before, so it was bound to happen. .)
    And the pain, It was up there with back labor. Holy crap!!! I still remember everything about it. It hurts me to think about it now, and I really hope I don't have to get it done this time.
