Stripped Membranes

Hello...im 39 weeks 5 days, 3cm 70% effaced and my doctor stripped my membranes today. Has anyone else had this done? What were your results? She says that she thinks it will get me going and said "see you tonight" when I left. I have been extrememly crampy since I left her office this morning and am wondering if this will jump start my labor.

Well the cramping is normal whether it works or not. I had my membranes striped twice I think with my first baby. Neither time did it do much. But I dont think I was 70% effaced or 3cm dialated when they did it. So I think your doctor was so possitive that she might see you tonight is because you could pop tonight even if she hadnt stripped them, but the stripping just gives you a little push in the right direction.

I had mine stripped with my last. I was in labor within 12 hours, and yes I cramped all day. It wasn't till 4 in the morning that I realized i was in labor But my DD was born within 24 hrs of having mine stripped! hope it goes that way for you!

I had mine stripped when I was 38 weeks w/ my daughter. I had been 3 cm and 80% for weeks. The doc. said the same thing to me, "well, we will prob. see you later tonight". My appt. was at like 2:30 in the afternoon and by 11 that night I was having regular contractions and went to the hopsital at 1 am. By 11 am my daughter was born.
