  • Not really lol. It's normal. :) You know that getting vaginal exams can actually inhibit labor right? It's like having someone checking your anus to make sure it was ready for a bowel movement. Unnatural and uncomfortable. If you just let your body do it's thing, relaxing, and not even thinking on the numbers, chances are you would go into labor easier. :)

    It will happen before you know it.

  • When I was 39 wks, I was only 2 cm. My doctor asked me if I wanted my labor induced since I was ready. I said yes. I had been 2 cm for about 3 wks.
