  • I'm jealous girl what have you been doing?? How dilated were you the first time around at 36 weeks?

    I was only 1cm with my first and wondering if it'll be different this time.

  • With my daughter I was 3cm on Wed (A week before my due date) He gave me the option to be enduced on the day of my choice. I came back that Friday to have her and everything went very quick and very smoothly. I believe my body was ready and it was not too early.

  • There is no way of predicting, it could be hours, days and even weeks. Being dilated a couple of cm does not mean that labor has to start soon.
