When you are 1 cm dilated how long can it take to go to 2 cms?

I am 1 cm dilated. Just need to know how much longer its gonna be now. Once you start to dilate does 2 and 3 and 4 cms come fast or could you stay 1 cm for a week or two?

  • All depends i stayed 1cm for 2weeks. and even if your having some labor pains it could take a while to get to 10cm or you could just fly on through. hard telling if your close to your due date you can walk and try to maybe start labor try sex to doesnt always work but some time it does.
