Ok I have another Dr. Appointment today. I am almost 39 weeks, last week i was dilated to a 2+cm 90% effaced. I have heard of people getting their membrane stripped and was curious what all they do to do this and if its a good idea or not. opinions please.Answer Question
Not a good idea. The doctor sticks his finger inside your cervix and makes a circle to loosen the bag of waters and move things along. It does sometimes work and is better than other methods of induction, but shouldn't be done unless you are approaching 42 weeks. Some people say it is uncomfortable. I say it hurt like hell. It caused my waters to break, but labor didn't start. Gotta love that unnecessary c-section! Do yourself a favor, be patient, walk and have a lot of sex.
