Pregnancy Pregnancy

Membranes Stripped

I'm 38wks & 3 days today. I'm so ready for this to be over! lol I have a doctors appointment today, at my one last week I was only a finger tip dilated & my cervix was soft. Has anyone ever had their membranes stripped & it actually sent them into labor? It's been so hot out I haven't really been able to go out & walk, & today when it's finally cool it's pouring rain. :(

I'm kind of disappointed. My daughter was born at 38wks & 1 day, I was so sure that he'd either be born then or before!

When I was overdue with my first, the nurses kept encouraging me to walk to kickstart labor.

Raises hand. Just did it and baby girl was born 12 hours later.

It doesn't work unless your body is ready though.

I would go for a walk but it's raining.

I had mine done, and 2 days later I did castor oil ( save me the "it's bad for the baby stuff") and then he came out.

I have had it done two seperate pregnancies.  The first one, I was past my due date for almost a week.  It worked.  The second one, I think I was a day past my due date or on my due date, and it didn't work.

Good luck!

I had mine done with my first. The next morning my water broke when I went to the bathroom the next morning. Although I did go into labor it was long and horrible. I dont think my son wanted to come quit yet. I was 39w 5 days when they stripped them I was only a finger tip as well she said she got me to about a 1 1/2 as i said labor next morning but still didnt have him till his due date. Long labor ugh.

My labor with my daughter was pretty quick. My water broke at 8am & she was born at 7:12pm after 12 minutes of pushing. I'm hoping my labor is about that this time too! I'm pretty much willing to try anything, except for castor oil!

I had mine stripped with my daughter at 39 weeks. I had her in my arms not even 24 hours later :) Id have to say though your body has to be ready. I was 2cm when they stripped them.
