I had it done 2ce with my last one, at 39 wks 4 days, again at 40 wks 4days. Needless to say it did cause some cx, tons of bad cramping soreness, but I got induced at 41 1/2 weeks. I tried DTD, EPO, walked a ton, etc, but nothing worked. Now when I got induced if you call it that, I didn't have any pitocin, just cervadil the gel and that's all I needed. I went from 1cm to 10cm in 4 hours, and he started coming out on his own. SO, my body was ready it just needed a lil' jumpstart. I was very reluctant on getting induced, but I'm glad I did. When my water broke at the hospital, the nurse said the fluid was low and meconium stained. She said both prolly from being overdue.
Hang in there. Your baby will come when he/she's ready.
However, knowing what I know now, I wouldn't get my membranes stripped. It was very uncomfortable afterwards and obviously didn't work. Hopefully though it works for you. They say you'll know in the 1st 48 hours
