I was told I am 3 cm dialated and 70% effaced. So how long after you were told something close to that did you go into labor?

Is there anything I can do to help it along? My doctor told me that I will probably have my little girl here with in the next 2 weeks. I am so excited and nervous!

  • About 3 weeks later. I was always dilating to 3 or 4 early. My first was 6 days late, second was 6 days early, and last was 8 days early. Ask them to swipe your membranes.

  • Don't let them swipe your membranes!! You'll start labor on your own...just be patient!
