Membrane stripping???

Today at my appt my doctor stripped my membranes. About an hour after, my contractions started getting much more intense and are still going strong now. I was wondering how many of you this worked for and how soon it worked for you?

  • Most woman its either REALLY fast or doesnt work at all. Looks like it worked for you. Good luck and congrats on the little one.

  • For me, my water broke a couple of days later, so not sure if it was related to the membrane strip or not.
    I agree with kiansmom, it either works right away or not at all, it seems.
    Congratulations! I hope your labor and delivery are nice and smooth! =)

  • Did you give your doctor permission to do that?

  • My Doctor stripped the membranes at 2:30 and then I had my baby at 9:25 that night. It was fast and easy. But it WAS my second deleivery I think they always go faster. and I was very relaxed, not nervous at all.

  • I had it done with my first born and he was born within 24 hours. I agree with some PP's I think it either works right away or not at all for most and it sounds like it could be working for you =) Congrats!
