Stripping Membranes

Ashleyg - September 17

just wondering if anyone had any experiences with this procedure...i am almost 38 weeks, 1 1/2 cm dialated and due to be induced next monday (sept 25) due to my gestational diabetes. but, at my last appt on sept 15th, the doc stripped my membranes. i had some minor bleeding, some stronger contractions, a lot of pain in my pubic bone, and some snotty looking discharge...i would really love to go into labor on my own!! any input would be greatly appreciated!

I had my membranes stripped at 39 weeks and it was very unpleasant. I was already 3 cm dilated. Unfortunately, I didn't go into labor like expected. I cramped and had contractions for 2 days though. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Good luck.

i had mine done this past thursday at 11am. i did have spotting throughtout the day then about 11p started noticing painful contractions about 10 minutes apart. i had the baby 4 hours later!!!! so it worked for me. oh by the way, i was 4cm when they did it, 39 wks
