How long did you go into real labor after you were there?

  • I don't get checked at all, it doesn't mean anything to be dilated or not unless you are in labor. The checks only tell you how many cm you are dilated at that moment not when labor will start.

  • I've been 3cm for a week now and still no baby. Just depends on what your body wants to do. You could go into labor today, or 3 weeks from now who knows.

  • I was 3cm and 50% and for weeks and I never got bigger I had a c- section before. But I think that you can stay this for a while how far along are you?

  • I asked my midwife to not even check me at my visits. Really, these numbers have NOTHING to do with when you're going to go into labor. Don't Get Your Hopes Up!
