Signs labor is near after membrane strip?

So I’m 38 weeks and 5 days getting stripped tomorrow afternoon and I been dilated more than 2 weeks now at 3cm I lost pieces of mucus plug for time to town since Friday I wonder if I’ll be in labor right after?


I had my membranes stripped and went into labor that night!

Not necessarily. I was 38 weeks and 4 cm. Was stripped. Had contractions but never went into labor from it

Getting membranes stripped kick starts labor for some, but not all. It did nothing for me but started cramps. Fingers crossed it’s different for you though! :two_hearts:

Same day for me, I was already 4cm dilated and 39w3d though

I went into labor the next morning

Walk walk walk, bounce on an exercise ball

Once you are dilated to 4 they have to keep you

I had my membranes stripped at my 38 week appointment for my first pregnancy. I went into labor within 48 hours.

Good luck!!! I wish you a speedy and wonderful birthing experience :purple_heart:

Had mine done and baby boy was born 5 hours later! Good luck!!

I went with my cousin when she got hers stripped. Her water broke 20 minutes later and had the baby 7 hours later.

Stripping did nothing to me but give me pain. At least they tried. :woman_shrugging:t3:
