  • It depends on if your water has broke and/or if you're having regular contractions. I was dilated to 4 cm for a month before I went into active labor...

  • I was 6cm for nearly a month with my oldest and they never put me in the hospital... I would think it's going to vary from doctor to doctor and case to case...

  • You don't have to be put in the hospital for that.
    ;-)
    But if you'd like to be admitted for laboring, wait until you're in labor. And maybe the later in labor the better.


    Being a certain centimeters dilated doesn't automatically equal labor / baby.

  • I have been 3cm and 75% effaced for 3 weeks now and they will not admit me until I am in active labor.

  • My doctor broke my water when I was having steady contractions and I dilated from there, that was with my 2nd child. With my first, I had to be 3-4 before they would admit me.
