  • I was dialated 3 centimeters for 2 weeks before the doctor decided to enduce me. and that was two weeks after my due date. My friend was dialated 2 centimeters that morning and by that evening she had her baby. so it all depends on the how big of a rush your baby is in.

  • Dialation usually means Your going into labor. You might have a Valintne baby.

  • when i was dilated 2centimeters.. i delivered like 5days later.. my daughter was about 10days early. however, my cousin for instance was dilated 2centimeters for like 3wks! so it just all depends. you might not go into labor immediately but i doubt you will make it to march 20th.

  • Dilation means NOTHING when it comes to predicting when you'll go into labor. Your child could easily be in there for another month or longer.

  • I spent my whole last trimester dialated. It could be today, it could be weeks. Dialation by itself doesn't mean much.

  • With my daughter I was dilated at 36 weeks(1cm). By 38 weeks I was 2cm, 39 weeks,3 cm and I ended up going past my due date and getting my water broken!
