You want to make it to 36 weeks. Before that your baby will probably go to the NICU. If you go into labor before 36 weeks, go to a good hospital with OB and the NICU on the same floor. Some hospitals don't have NICUs and transfer infants. Some hospitals have the NICU far from OB. You can go to a different hospital, just make sure about your insurance.
Effaced means thinned out and isn't as important as dilated. Some people walk around dilated to 3 cm for weeks. The doctor and hospital should have given you written instructions of when to call and when to return to the hospital. Seeing the mucous plug, water breaking, diarrhea, and vomitting are some other things to watch for.
