I am 37 weeks and the doctor told me yesterday I am 4cm dilated.. how long was everyone else at 4 before going into labor?

With my daughter I was induced while being 2 cm but that was for preeclampsya. Yesterday the doctor said my baby is measuring at 39 weeks, they are definitly head down and my cervix is VERY favorable (sounds a little creepy to me haha) So I am just wondering if anyone was 4 cm for a while or if they usually go into labor shortly after.

  • At my 38 week appointment I was 1 cm dilated and I had my daughter 4 days later. I didn't get checked at the 37 week appointment.

  • i was in labor with 4-5cm....i was at the time been having contractions for about 6 hrs then completely stopped. started back up and was not able to take it anymore went in to get checked and was told to go to the hospital right then. i walked from the car to the hospital lobby...craziness...then went from 5 to 7 cm in about 2 hrs...the child was out 2 hrs later..
