Bless your heart woman!! you have given me a small fraction of hope. I had mine done yesterday... and I have heard of a few people going into labor a few days after the membranes were stripped... I thought it was hopeless for me since I haven't gone into labor yet... but YOU, you have given me hope, that maybe it will happen in the next few days... I may be able to go a few more days before I beg my doctor to schedule an induction, before I do something crazy.
