  • Sometimes it goes ALLOT faster than that. Each person is different. Your within the normal range. Labor should start soon. Good luck.

  • It's different for everyone!! Maybe that means you'll have a fast delivery!! With my daughter when I was checked for the first time at 36 weeks I was 3cm ...I had her 10 days early (so about 2 weeks later) But my delivery was really quick!! I went from 3-10 cm in about 2 hrs!!

  • There is no "normal", sorry. :) I stayed at 1 for a few weeks, then was 4 when I went in to labor. They said I'd probably progess a cm an hour after that...yet eight hours later I was only at 6. They had to give me Pitocin to speed things along (my water had broken, so we had a stricted timeline) and I finally hit 10cm eight hours after I was at 6. Some people go from 2 to 10 in half an hour. Sorry, but there really isn't a solid answer. :)

  • As the others said, everyone is different. With my first, when I went into the hospital I was 4cm and it took about 5 hours to get to 10cm. With my second I was walking around 3cm for about a week, then I went into labor and she was out in 3hours! Anyway, best of luck, hope it goes quickly!
