  • I am sorry to say that it could be days or weeks. I was a couple cms for a couple weeks before i went into actual labor. And pain and pressure are part of the awful end of being pregnant. Hang in there, it will be soon enough!

  • I just got back from the doctor and he said that could feel the babies head and that I was dilated to a finger tip, but he said that I could stay like that for a looo0onnnggg time..luckly they don't want me to go past 39 weeks so I won't have to wait too long if I don't dilate any more.

  • effacement means the babies head is turn to the biirthing possition, upside down. Thinning is the uterous thinning out so u can dialated more. and no it doesnt mean your going to have the baby soon like this week soon. you very well could, but it all depends on the baby. gl
