nhinze01:Had it done twice in the past 2 weeks and nothing :( IT probably helps move things along if your body is closer to being ready.
Same here, I had it done this Monday and last Monday and nothing so far. However I was only 1 cm dilated both times and I've been that way for a long time. It would probably work better on people who are making more progress on their own. It did make me a little crampy and I lost a bunch of bloody/brown mucus for a few days after both times. I do know some people though that get it done and go into labor the next day.
I had it done Tues. when I was 1 cm/75% effaced. It didn't hurt me at all. Still no baby though. I'm going tomorrow to have it done again. Hopefully I'll at least dilated a bit more. One of my friends had it done at 3cm and went into labor 2 days later and another at 2cm and went 15 hours later.
You want to be a crampy after! That means it's working!
