Does It Sound Like My Membranes Were Stripped

Hey guys! Yesterday was my 39th week appt. During my internal, my doctor while seeing how effaced and dialted I was told me that I was the same I was the week prior. 1 1/2 cm dialted and 30% effaced. He then did something but didnt say what it was. It was actually kinda painful. He said that I would feel something like electric shocks in my cervix area. It felt like he was trying to open it or something. He told me after it was over that I might spot a little bit after and that if i start to feel different in any way that I should call the doctors office and go to the L&D. Anyways I was looking up info about stripping membranes because I wanted to ask him about it for my next appt next week, and everything I found seems to say that is what he did. I have lost my mucus lpug already but since yesterday I have been losing bigger pieces of it. No blood either. Can you guys tell me about your experiences with stripping the membranes? Also IF that is what he did I am in no way mad. I would be thanking God and him right now. haha I just dont want anyone to think he is a bad doctor that he didnt tell me or what not. He is the best doctor I have ever seen actually. So anyways is that what it sounds like he did?

Also dont know if this is relevant but he said that my cervix feels like a mashmellow. haha which is good he said. Does that matter? I havent had any contractions that differ from the BH ones I have already been having either.

It sounds like he stripped your membranes and when the cervix softens it means you are getting ready for labor - pretty soon for you girl especially if you lost your mucus plug - sometimes you spot after sometimes you don't how exciting for a some nice leisurely walks and see if that doesn't help get things going. Good Luck

Oh and last night I did have some very light cramping too but nothing that would have made me think labor. haha
