  • Yes it's normal, your doc should have told you to expect it. Just were a panty-liner to catch the exsess.

  • Sounds like bloody show, that's good! Baby should be coming soon! If you're concerned, give your doc a call, but it sounds like the stripping has been successful for you.

  • Yep! Means the doc did it right! LOL Hopefully, it'll encourage something to happen! =)

  • Yeah, that's normal. Pay attention to how you feel because labor could start. I went into labor the same day my ob scraped mine. It only took like 8 hours after the labor was dialating me enough for the hospital trip. By 11:50pm that day I had my baby. Good luck :)
