  • I think it really depends... Is this your first time? I recalled my first time, I had 3cm dialated but took another week to get to 5cm and in labor next morning. The 2nd time had 2cm and in labor a couple days later. The 3rd time I was supposed to go in for last time check-up but the water broke at 4am so had to be in labor room and the nurse checked it was 5cm. However, I had long time wating to dialate further more, I was laying there for another 10 hours before started pushing. Man...so you never known. Just move less and laying more if you don't want to be in labor now.

  • I dont know... when I was checked at 31 weeks in L&D I was 2 cm dilated and then I dilate a cm every other week (3 at 33, 4 at 35 and 5 at 37) til I was induced at 38 1/2 weeks. So I dont know how long I was 2 cm for

    But... you can be 2 cm for WEEKS or you can be 2 cm for an hour. There is no telling how long you will stay there. 2 cm at 37 weeks is pretty average

  • I never got to a 2 before my C-section at 39 weeks with my first. With my second, I was at "maybe a 1" at 39 weeks 3 days, and a 3 when I got to the hospital after an hour of intense contractions, so not long at a 2. But I've heard of women staying at 3 or 4 cm for weeks, so it really has no bearing on when you'll go into labor.
