First of all, I am educated about the infection risks involved with this and have made an informed decision. I am 38/39 weeks and have been in pre-labor for two weeks. I met with my Midwife today, she checked my cervix, it is extremely soft, at least 70% effaced and a definate 4 cm dialated. We decided to strip my membranes. She also mentioned that the amniotic sack was very bulgy. So ladies my questions are, what happens from this point:
Could I go into labor soon?
Will it come on fast or gradually?
Would my water be more likely to break on its own?
Will nothing happen at all?
What happened to you?
These are things that are so variable that I would be so grateful for your imput and experience. I decided not to bombard my Midwife with these questions because she had many other patients to see this morning. Thank you so much in advance. CM ladies you are all so wonderful :)
