efaced opposed to dialated

So I went for my check today and i'm 1/2 cm and 50% efaced. I know that you can be dialated for weeks before you actually go into labor because with my last pregnancy I was 4cm for weeks. However, if i'm already 50% efaced what are my chances of going into labor soon?

  • You have to be 100 percent effaced to deliver the baby. Could take hours, could take days.

  • The chances are no different than if you weren't effaced at all.
