  • It took several days for me to go into labor from that stage.

  • I was 2cm for about 5 weeks.

  • there's no right answer. i was at 2cm at 29 weeks, my son was born at 41. i'm sure you won't be waiting 12 weeks, but it could be awhile, or it could be very soon. every body is different.

  • It's hard to detect how long it will take. It is different for every woman.

  • ditto the rest...its different for everyone.

    I only recall #3 but I was dialated 3cm for the last 6weeks of my pregnancy.

  • I never dialated until I was in full blown labor. My babies like to surprise me, I guess! Hope it progresses quickly for you. Congrats!
