  • yes it means the same thing. it doesn't sound like you have very much longer to go. i was about the same but 2cm when i went into labor with my son and i was only 4 days from my due date but you could have the baby early. if you have the baby now or sometime soon there shouldn't be any problems because at about 36-37 weeks the baby is considered full term. good luck and congrats!
