  • I don't I was 2.5cm for about 13hours but I was in labor. once you hit 4cm they will probably keep you in the hospital though...adve: HAVE SEX, TAKE A WALK, HAVE SEX, TAKE A WALK, HAVE SEX, TAKE A WALK
    that should do it

  • I was 3cm for almost 3wks so it could be anytime or it could be later...If you are term try walking, and sex --- or just wait and see what happens...GL on a happy healthy baby!

  • I was dilated to a 2, and 90% thinned out for a little over a month before I had my son.

  • you can be that way for awhile. Just be patient it will happen, the baby isnt going to stay in there forever

  • Sorry, momma, but there are a HUGE range of answers to this. I lost my mucus plug and was about 2 cm dilated for over a month with #1

  • I went in for my 38 week checkup and was 1cm dilated 80% effaced. At 39 weeks I was 3cm dilated. I was almost 4cm dilated at my 41 week check up, and I was induced two days later at 4cm dilated, still had not felt a contraction and my water was intact. Sorry to say, but no one knows but that baby when it will choose to come out, but if it's not to your liking.. you can always be induced :P

  • *Probably* under 2 months away.

    Labor can happen whenever. These things can happen in the last trimester.
    Not an indication of when you will labor or how-- at all.
