  • if ur only 2 cm, it could still take weeks for you to have ur baby. i kno it sucks, but it takes a while to get to 10. unless ur water breaks, or they break it for you. and even then, it could take hours. thats what happened to me. they broke my water @ 8am. didnt have my son til 12hrs later. GOOD LUCK! =)

  • I was 2 cm and 90% effaced and it took me another week. When I finally went into the hospital my contractions were like six minutes apart and I was 3cm and 100%. He didn't really drop either. That was at nine in the morning. I didn't have him till one the next morning by C-Section. It's so unpredictable

  • I was 2 cm and 80% effaced for two weeks ... I was late too. I started to go into labor a day before my induction, was given some pitocin & epidural, pushed for two hours and still nothing. He was stuck in my pelvis, so I had to have a csection.
