How long were you dilated 3 cm and 50% effaced?

I went to the Dr. today and I am 3 cm and 50% effaced. I know that it is not a time line for labor to begin. I was just wondering how long you all were dilated before you started labor.

  • I was at 4 cm or more for 6 weeks (my son was 17 days late) but I don't know how "effaced" I was, they never told me... We induced at 42 1/2 weeks. I started to dilate around 34 weeks, then was between 4 & 6cm until we induced...
