Ok so I am 38 weeks and 2 days and had my membranes stripped yesterday. I am 2cm dilated and 70% effaced, my question is how long should you spot afterward? I had some major spotting yesterday which is normal according to the doc and this morning the spotting had stopped, but at work tonight I started having some brown mucous like discharge. I was just wondering could this be some of my mucous plug or just old blood?

I think I just lost my mucous plug it was clear with brown streaks throughout and really slotty globby. Cool I guess the membrane stripping did something...

Hey Stephanie that sounds like it! Yay for you! I had mine done yesterday and I don't think it did much, I'm just cramping and that's it, no spotting nothing. So I guess it didn't do much.

Staci- I wouldn't ever have mine stripped again... It hurt like heck. Did yours hurt?

Oh my gosh yes it hurt! I will seriously think about it harder before I do it again. I did have a good chunk of brown discharge come out a little while ago when I went to the bathroom, so I guess it's helping a bit! If i lose more of that the I know I'm starting to lose my plug! yayy! How are you feeling? I'm getting a bit crampier than before..

Yeah i was definetly more crampy today and tonight, it sounds like its the start of your mucous plug to me, that is how mine started last night and then around 11 this morning I know I lost the rest of it.... Woohoo keep me posted

Good luck ladies! I am going to ask tomorrow about having mine stripped (38wks3days) I hope I can at least try that method too, even if it doesn't work :) I already lost my plug.
