  • I don't know why they would've stripped your membranes which to the best of my knowledge is a method used to induce labor AND then schedule a c section. But I've never had a c section so I don't know if they normally do this.

  • Take a warm bath and maybe it will help loosen ur cervix. I did when I went into labor and after 15min or less my water broke
