I know I have time still, but... adult content

I'm 38.5 weeks pregnant, 3cm dialated and about 70% effaced at 0 station, irregular contractions (like period cramps), still a decent amount of movement from baby and feeling pressure on my tailbone. I know I have almost 4 weeks of being in the "safe zone" for being pregnant, but I want to hear from other people about how long the baby kept cooking when you were told similar numbers!

So, how long did you walk around with numbers/feelings like this?

  • I went a whole month at 3 cm dialated. My baby was 2 weeks late. Sorry I know that's NOT what you wanted to hear.

  • I think I went about 5 or 6 weeks with those stats! it kinda sucked lol. I had my hopes up that the everything was going to happen quickly, but I still had to have my membranes stripped to get my contractions jump started into a regular rhthym and they had to break my water. I know, not what you wanna hear!! Good luck to you though!

  • I think it just varies person to person. I know some people who were 3cm for weeks and weeks and others (like myself) went into full blown labor 0cm dilated and barely effaced.
