  • probably 3-4 weeks, especially if its the first time. I was 36 wk and 1 cm and I kept going to 41 weeks despite the walking, spicy food and all the other old wive's tales.

  • Well by basic math 3-4 weeks, however, no one can really tell you when it will happen. anywhere between 38-42 weeks is normal for natural labor to start.

  • i was 1 cm for 2 weeks at 37 weeks and i induced my own labor at exactly 39. i was not having any BHCs and was not feeling like the baby was coming. i had sex with my bf and that started bhcs. i immediately went out to shopping centers and just kept walking for hours to keep the contractions coming. i went to the hospital that night and was 5 cm and gave birth 4 hours later

  • ive just had very complicated pregnancies, w my first i took medicine to control contractions n i made it full term, this time i had other problems but not early labor so no medicine this time, i guess its a waiting game now

  • You can be like that for the rest of your pregnacy or you can go into labor tonight. There is no specific timing when it comes to babies. They like the surprise.
