  • If you are only 27 weeks pregnant and dialated to 3 already you should probably be on some kind of bedrest at the least...I would find a new dr. There are signs that a dr. can look for to try to predict if your body is getting ready for delivery but there is really no way to know for sure... I was dialated 4 for over a month before I finally had my son.

  • He told you this because doctor's think they are god and can control these things. A friend was at 3 at 36 weeks and didn't deliver until 41 weeks and there was no cause for concern. That is precisely why I refused all internal exams until I was in transition and knew I was having the baby within a few hours. I was 6 at that point and was holding my son about 2 hours later. By scope do you mean ultrasound?

  • well now that you have changed it to 37 weeks rather than dont need the bedrest but the doctor still can't really tell for sure when you will deliver unless he is inducing you. He can make an educated guess but it I wouldnt count on it.
