  • I was 3 cm for about 2 weeks before I went into labor with my dd so it just depends. I never felt a contraction and then one night my water broke. I didnt have any contractions after that until they gave me pitocin.

  • there really is no way of telling because its different for EVERYONE i went from 1.5 cm to 4cm over night and my friend was at 2cm till she was 40 weeks then her water broke and they had to induce her cause she was staying at a 2cm, my mom only dilated to 3cm and they had to do a csection cause nothing else was happening.
    but if it counts for anything they should admit you as soon as you start having contractions because your already at 3cm

  • There is no telling. I was 3 cm at 33 weeks, 4 at 35 weeks, 5 at 37 weeks and then was induced at 38 1/2 weeks. Then other people are 1cm at the start of labor and have their baby within 24 hours! All it (TYPICALLY) means is that your labor will be slightly quicker when you go into it because alot of your "early" labor (1 to 4 cm) is already done. But I wouldnt be headed to the hospital anytime soon
