  • It took me forever it really depends on how effaced you are because for 1 1/2 I was 2 cm dilated but only 75% effaced and I was over due. I asked my ob the same Q she said things can chage real fast you don't exactly know 2 days later I went into labor.

  • You could go fast or you could go slow,

    How far along are you?

    after i was around 1 cm...and about 70% thinned, i went into labor around 2 weeks later,

    I would call the office ..you dont have to talk to the doctor, the nurses in the office can tell you what he put down on the chart, and see how thinned you are,

    goodluck hon

  • I was dilated to 1 for almost 3 weeks I think. Walking will help the baby come down and help with the dilating.

  • I was dialated to 1 1/2 for almost 4 weeks before labor started.

  • I was 3cm and 60% effaced at 32 weeks and didn't deliver until I was induced at 41 weeks!!

  • I know people who have started dilating six weeks before going into labor, and some of those were induced! Don't get too bogged down in the numbers, though I know it's hard not to, as people ask all the time! The important number is 10, other than that I wouldn't really worry! :)
