  • Really it just all depends on your body. You may get to 3cm and stop. Or you may continue on and keep dialating. You can't really tell. It contractions you should really be monitoring. Good Luck!!!

  • I have been 3.5 cms dilated, 70 percent effaced, baby head down and low, and lost my mucus plug since 35 weeks. I am now 38 weeks, 1 day pregnant and still no labor... Just contractions, but my cervix has now stalled.

    It could be hours, days, or weeks..

  • yeah, just depends on Ur body, i was 1cm dilated at 37wks and 80% then the next week at 2.5cm so just depends, but good luck to u. of coarse if Ur worried or in too much pain I'm sure Ur Dr will induce right.?

  • thank you. i started at 1 cm at 29 weeks. and have slowly progressed since then... i think partially with the help of mag. and strict bed rest. they are hoping i make it at least 3 more weeks.... so we will see.
