I went into false labor last week, but they sent me home from the hospital until my contractions were stronger or my water broke. It has been a week already, and nothing has been progressing. My family doctor suggested that I come in tomorrow to get my membranes stripped. I am 39 weeks and 3 cm dilated so far, but my contractions have pretty much stopped since they sent me home from the hospital and now all i have is really really painful cramps. Did stripping of the membranes help for anyone and mostly what i'd like to know is if it put you into labor? I'm really hoping this will work, it's been really painful over the last week and I just want to hold my little girl already!
