Induction method: While your doctor or midwife is checking your cervical dilation at the end of your pregnancy, they can sweep their finger in a circle to slightly loosen the bag of water from the top of the cervix.

Spotting and some cramping is common after this exam. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I am 38 weeks pregnant and went to the doctor today. While doing my internal exam, she asked me if I wanted her to strip my membranes. What does that mean?
Preparing for Labor: The membranes are loosely adherent to the lining of the uterus.

Ovulation prediction: I assume you're referring to ovulation prediction kit (opk). If that's the case, a positive test confirms you've ovulated but says nothing about pregnancy. To determine if you're pregnant, you need to take a pregnancy test (not ovulation prediction test). Of course you need to take test as directed, in other words, at least 4 wks after last menstrual period, not just any random day less than 4wk. ...Read more
