Did you have your membrians stripped....Did it work?

How long after the doctor did it did you go into labor and deliver your baby? It worked for me with my first and she came shortly after. I'm curious to know how it worked for other people. Let me know, Thanks :)

  • Had it done twice with the last two. First time I started with early labor around 4pm and had it done around 10am. I got to the hospital but turned out my sons heartbeat was dropping with every contraction so they had to pop my water and help it along more. With my last they did it the night before my scheduled induction but nothing happened.

  • I had it done with both of my kids MULTIPLE times (trying to avoid an induction for high blood pressure) and it NEVER worked.
