I had my 38 wk appt today and I was told I was not dilated and I was 60% effaced. When my doctor checked me, I noticed that it took a little longer and it hurt a lot more. It usually doesn't hurt at all.
Since the appointment I have been really crampy and in some discomfort. I didn't think to ask at the time if he did strip my membranes. I was under the impression that you had to be dilated a little before they could strip your membranes.
Is it possible he could have stripped them when I am just effaced?
