  I am 40  weeks and still 2 cm. The doctor stripped my membranes about 2 hours ago. Anyone have any success with this?

I got mine stripped(w/o my knowledge) with my last pregnancy. It happened to be Halloween so I took my kids trick-or-treating and on Nov 2nd my son was born. I was 39 weeks 1 day pg.

I will honestly say that with my first DD, they stripped my membranes twice and I still had to have a full induction done!!  She ended up being born 10 days after her due date and my membranes were stripped 2 and 3 weeks before my induction!!

So I said that to say this.........it doesn't always work and you may still have to wait!

Good luck!

With my first I got my membranes stripped at my appointment on Wed afternoon.. I had my baby thurs night at 11pm & I was 38 weeks. BTW my dr told me I might bleed a little bit after stripping them.. but I spotted from the time he did it until the next day & was in hardcore pain..

It will only work if the baby is ready to be born... I had it done at 41 weeks w/ my first pregnancy and went into labour a few hours afterwards (active labour early the next morning).
