Im 40 weeks and 4 days pregnant, since about 8pm last night till this morning i have had mild cramping(like my period) that makes me feel pressure in my butt, along with lower dull back pain. I am 1cm dilated and 80% effaced and -1 station. I have heard that an average pregnancy for a first time mom is 41 weeks and 1 day. Is that true? If so does that mean i will defently have my baby by the 18th? which would be 41 weeks and 1 day for me.
I feel like im not progressing any at all, but have been having some mild cramps since 8pm last night, but not close like 15 mins apart.
My doctor has an app with me on the 16th to talk about inducing i guess.
Thanks for all your help :)
Also if i were to go into the hospital with contractions 5 mins apart, but i still wasn't dilated would they keep me, and give me something to help things along?
How long is early labor?
Also they dont get that bad my
