Dr Stretched My Cervix

Alyssa - April 1

Hi, I'm at 38 1/2 weeks now with my second child. I've been "a good 2 cms" dialated since 35 weeks and was still the same at last appointment 2 days ago. Dr also stretched my cervix, uncomfortable but not painful. That night had braxton hicks every 5 to 10 minutes for 2 hours. Then the next day, had a red-streaked mucus pass. Wonder if it's my plug? Every few hours I pass a small brownish mucus. I haven't read anything in this forum about stretching cervix's other then one last year. A friend said her sister-in-law had it done and had her baby within 3 days. Anyone else experience this stretching? Or is it uncommon?

sounds like it is working for you, I dont know anything about stretching of the cervex, but i had my membranes stripped and it worked.

Sounds like membrane stripping Different obgyn's call it different things. I had it done yesterday and she told me to expect some bloody show, well didn't have any yesterday but this am i have had ALOT. also alot of pain and pressure. contractions off and on, just started to time the BIG ones, So far the big ones are about 40 min apart. have had minor ones in there too, also thinking i may be leaking some fluid not sure. Hoping this is a sign that it is gonna happen soon!

I've experienced some mucus discharge every once in a while now, but other then _major_ braxton hicks, nothing. So impatient! (sigh) but only 10 days till the due date. Hopefully it works for you Naomi!
