Hey, i'm 38 weeks, but my baby measures 40 weeks and my doctor wants to strip my membranes and i'm 1/2cm dialated and 50% efface. Will it start labour?

well in theory it should but it doesnt always work i think its a 50/50 chance but my dr told me taht he had a very high success rate at it :) if you get it done please let me know if it hurt cuz my dr wants to do taht to me in 2 weeks :x

In another thread posted just a couple days ago a woman had hers stripped at 3 centimeters and nothing happened. I talked to my dr about it at 1 centimeter dialated and he said my cervix isn't ready so he's waiting. you'll hear 50/50 I'm guessing. I also posted about this in the infant care forum and got about a 50% it worked and 50% it didn't work. So it'll work if your body is ready! Good luck!

thanks for replying, i'm getting it done on july 5th, and this is my first so i'm sort of scared.

don't be scared! and it's not supposed to hurt! I've heard it's uncomfortable, just breath through it and you'll be fine! Good luck!! let us know if it works for you!
