Naked Membranes

I had my membrane stripped today. I am 1cm dilated. So now, I have naked membranes and I am still at a 1. I am hoping it helps progress things.

Anyone have 'stripping' stories? Did it work for you?

P.S. our baby is 7+lbs. YIKES!


  1. awesome. well not the stripping part. why'd they decide to do that? they told me my baby was going to be 8lbs! i almost panicked but then he was only 6.10. good luck :)

  2. Stripping the membrane worked both times for me. Baby was here within 36 hours. Both my babies were well over 7 lbs. Good luck!

  3. Emily: He did it also due to all the symptoms of toxemia except blood pressure. I'm hanging right on the wire with it. He wants things to get going too so we can figure out why I am having my migraines/TIAs. We never did a MRI. Steven and I decided to wait till after the baby came. He said if we go till the 27th (my due date) the baby could be well over 10lbs!!!! YIKES! I hope they are wrong and the baby is only 6lbs. That would be fantastic!

    Kristin: Since the stripping this morning my cramps in my back have become more intense. Especially when I try to walk it off. I'm hoping it helps speed things up!

  4. Well, they stripped mine 3 times with my oldest. It didn't work. They did it when I was dilated to a 3, and nothing! I hope it works for you! Then they told me he would be around 8 lbs and he was 10 lbs 5 oz. Then with my little girl, she was 7 lbs 3 oz. I would rather have the 10 lbs!

  5. I'm still pregnant. I'm guessing it isn't working.
