They told me that streaks are okay but if you have alot of blood you need to go in asap.

Go get a pedicure.  Maybe you will induce yourself naturally

I had my membranes stripped three times. The frist time I bled for a little bit, actually needed a pad, but it stopped after a few hours. If it doesn't stop, I would call your dr back. Good luck! : )

Always call your doctor FIRST when you are concerned, just as you did.  They can often reassure you.  If your doctor feels you need to go to the hospital, he/she will tell you.  Unless you are hemorrhaging or having sudden, severe pain.

Sounds like it will be soon!  Good luck!

Good luck!  Is that why they are inducing so early, since it came on so fast?  Lucky girl, I hope you have another quick labor like that.  Mine started with heavy cramping and contractions that were bearable for a few hours, then really kicked in.  Maybe you should be timing those cramps, that may be all you feel.
