1 cm dilated and 50% effaced....

I know the 1 cm doesn't necessarily mean anything, but the 50% means I'm getting close, right? Anyone?!

  • It could mean it's close for sure! It's different for everyone. I don't want to discourage you lol but I was 50% effaced and 2 cm for like 3 weeks. But hey, it definitely means you have an advantage when you do go into labor! Congrats!!!

  • I would say yes, that means you are getting close. The day before I went into labor I was 2 cm and 50 % effaced. I think the effaced part is more important to start.

  • I was 50% effaced for 7 weeks before my induction. Maybe even longer than that but thats the first time they checked me
