  • I stayed 2 cm dialated for 2 weeks. Then they put me in for inducing ( I was past due date) and even on putossin (sp?) It took 24 hrs to have b/c I wouldn't dialate. He was my 3rd. My 2nd I almot had in the car! My contractions went from 8 min apart to 3 min apart in one timing. I got to the hospital in 7 min and was 9.5 cm dialated when I GOT there! It varies with each woman and each pregnancy! Good Luck!! Those last few weeks are the WORST b/c you are so ready to be DONE!

  • i wouldnt go to the hospital unless you have 6 strong contractions in an hour.. you could be dialated to one for days without changing, but walk, have sex and blah blah blah.. lol

  • i was dilated to 2 in an office visit and then 5 days later went to the hospital when my contractions were really intense adn I was at a 6 and half an hour later i was at an 8 (yeah that sucked btw) then my little guys heart rate dropped and we did a c section (he is perfect now though) it varies from woman to woman try walking it out and get that babys room ready!

  • I couldn't even tell you cause with my son in 24 hours I went from 2 to his head comin out and with my daughter in 4 hours I went from 1 to 10 so every one is different
