  • When your baby is ready to come. It could be a couple of weeks still. I walked around 4cm for three weeks before my induction with my second. I had my membranes stripped with my first and it didn't do anything but hurt like hell. Not to be a downer, but don't get your hopes up too much because it could be a while yet.
    Good Luck, your little one will be here soon enough :D

  • Drink some caster oil to get it going if you want. You will poo your brains out, but it worked for me. I had contractions for about an hour and then my water broke. It's worth a shot but it doesn't always work. If you anxious to get things moving that is. Other than that, there's no telling. If you don't want to go that route, try lots of sex and walking.

  • When your body is ready. Not until then.

  • probably will be unrelated to having membranes stripped.... it's impossible to say. we don't even know how many weeks you are. if you are 42 weeks, i'd guess within a couple of days. if you are 41 weeks, i say within the next week or so. if you are 40 weeks, within the next 2 weeks or so....... gl :)
