Question For Those Who Have Had Membranes Stripped

Jenn2 - June 15

I just got back from my 41 week doctors appointment and thank the lord!! I'm starting to dilate. I am about 2cm and the doctor said I was thinning out allot (didn't say a %). This time when he did the internal he dug way up there, and it was more uncomforitable than last time. He did something.....and it did not occur to me at the time (which is why I did not ask), but I am wonering if he stripped my membranes?? He told me as I was leaving that I may spot a little from him doing that. I dont know if he was saying that simply b/c he was able to get further up this time b/c I am more dilated, or if he did strip my membranes. for anyone who has had this done before.....what did your doctor do to strip the membranes?

Hello Jenn2 I had it done twice and it sounds to me from what you are describing that he did strip your membranes I spotted a little bit afterwards both times the second time I had it done I was only maybe half a centimeter but the next day I went into labor but it also could have been that the baby was ready to come out then. So hopefully that is what it is and you will be going into labor soon.. Good Luck
