I'm 39w2d pregnant and today went in for my routine weekly check up and got my cervix checked, doc sd that I was 2-3 cm dialated, how long after did you other mom's go into labor after being that dialated?

I know that just because it's at 2-3 it could stay there for possible another week or so... But just wanted an idea or hear what you other mommies experienced! I've been having a lot of symptoms and having minor contractions I just wish it would be soon can't wait to see him =]

  • It is different for everyone. I was dialated 4 centimeters when I started contracting but even at 10cm i had to be induced. Ended up with a c-section for having a tilted pelvic bone and baby was trying to come out but couldn' just hang in there and wait til you start contracting every 5 minutes before you go into the hospital

  • I went around 3 - 4 for about another week, then they induced me. Good luck! This was with my 2nd, with my daughter I wasn't like that at all, I was probably 1.
