  • who knows... only the baby knows when he/she is ready to come

  • Yeah, it really depends on the baby and your body.
    It could be days, weeks.. minutes, hours.

    Good luck!. :]

  • Like the other posters said, it could be any time. My doctor checked me at 35 weeks and I was dilated to one. I didn't go into labor until 40 weeks 3 days.

  • With my first I was dialated at 3cm for a week and with this one I was checked last week and I was at 1cm so it really just depends on your body but it never hurts to be ready.
