*hugs* katie! Are you sloshing when you walk?

I had my appointment and my membranes stripped. I am 2cm and 70% effaced. My plug was gone already. It hurt like heck and I haven't had a single cramp since I left the office an hour ago LOL *shrug*

I had mine stripped with my first and didn't notice anything until the next day, when my water broke . Good luck!

I had mine stripped at 38 weeks with DD. I didn't have her until 41 weeks. But I did lose my plug later that week, I think. It may have been before that, I really can't remember (I do remember being totally grossed out about the plug). I had tons of cramping, but it obviously didn't jump-start labor for me.

No sloshing, but I do feel a little water logged!

Agreed!! I hope it works for you, Amber! My old OB wouldn't strip membranes and I haven't asked my current one.

Katie, I hope that baby stays put for at least one more week!

Things have bern fairly calm for me today. I had about 30 minutes of contractions at 4 minutes apart but that was it, less a random contraction here and there. I have a feeling I'm in this for the long haul again. Oh well, I have lots of fun stuff the next few days so I would like to enjoy those things anyway. I got everything to my accountant today, cleaned my office and did all of my quarterly tax stuff yesterday, so I'm feeling officially ready at any time. I also it DS's hair cut today. I'm supposed to get my hair cut and colored next week and I'm getting a fresh pedi on Monday. I will be ready on all counts after those things

Good to hear! I am excited... mostly about being able to buckle him in the house and then plop him in after I get the other kids in lol.

I had it done at 38, 39 and 40 with DD and they broke my water at the hospital just after 40 for unlrelated things. Then with DS I had it done at 40 and went into labor 2 days later. No idea if it was related, or he was just totally ready.

I'm having some cramping and I had a tiny bit of spotting earlier. Mostly my back hurts and I've got radiating pain down my inner thigh. I think dude settled on a nerve.
