  • Of course you have a chance. I have a friend that walked around at 5cm 75% for 3 weeks before she went into labor. I have heard in second pregnancies especially that dilation doesnt have much to do with anything. I was dilated for 3 weeks before i was induced. The day i was induced i was at 3cm and 75% and nothing happened on its own. I would tell your kiddo to stay in there!! A christmas kiddo would be sweet!! :)

  • Icky. I went to doc at 36w and was dialated to 2. No one told me it meant nothing. But come 38w my son made his way out on his own! Hopefully yours does the same. id want baby to come before xmas.

  • lucky, lol. i was due thursday and my cervix hasny softened yet. I will find out tomorrow if it has since im now bout to be 41 wks.
    it seems like your baby might come earlier but you never know. The baby might just wait since it is possible to be dilated for a while.
